A bit more about the two productions:

A Memory, A Monologue, A Rant, and A Prayer:
Author, playwright and performer Eve Ensler (Author/creator of the Vagina Monologues) hosts a collection of new, personal and often powerful essays by celebrities, literati and feminist luminaries. Ensler looks to these figures jolt readers out of passivity and into the thick of the issue. These monologues are inspired, funny, angry, heartfelt, tragic, and beautiful. But above all, together they create a true and profound portrait of this issue's effect on every one of us.

Featuring writings by Mark Matousek • Susan Miller • Kathy Najimy • Howard Zinn • Christine House • Nicholas D. Kristof • Eve Ensler • Alice Walker

The Vagina Monologues:
The award-winning play is based on V-Day Founder/playwright Eve Ensler's interviews with more than 200 women. With humor and grace the piece celebrates women's sexuality and strength.

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.

rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
