Until the Violence Stops features playwright and activist Eve Ensler in a film that documents how The Vagina Monologues grew into an international grassroots movement called V-Day to stop violence against women and girls. In 2002, 800 cities around the world participated in V-Day by staging benefit performances of The Vagina Monologues. Until the Violence Stops shows women from Harlem to Ukiah, California; from the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation to the Philippines and Kenya, uniting and revealing their intimate and painful experiences with abuse ranging from rape to female circumcision. Event organizers say that director Abby Epstein takes viewers on a poignant journey into the hearts of women and includes revealing testimonies from men, who expose social and cultural attitudes that perpetuate the pervasive violence against women.
The event is free and open to the public.
