The Vagina Monologues - February 6, 2020 at the Bear Tooth TheatrePub

​​
"Probably the most important piece of political theater of the last decade."
- Charles Isherwood, The New York Times



In 1994, a play called The Vagina Monologues, written by playwright and activist Eve Ensler, broke ground, offering to the world a piece of art like nothing it had seen before. Based on dozens of interviews Ensler conducted with women, the play addressed women's sexuality and the social stigma surrounding rape and abuse, creating a new conversation about and with women. The Vagina Monologues ran Off-Broadway for five years in New York and then toured the United States. After every performance, Ensler found women waiting to share their own stories of survival, leading her to see that The Vagina Monologues could be more than a moving work of art on violence; she divined that the performances could be a mechanism for moving people to act to end violence.


This production has been an inspiring and powerful fundraising event for STAR since 2016.

Join us for the 21st Annual ​Denim Day!


On April 29, 2020, millions of people across the world will wear jeans with a purpose, support survivors, and educate themselves and others about all forms of sexual violence. 


The  Denim Day campaign is held worldwide on a Wednesday in April in honor of Sexual Violence Awareness Month. The campaign was originally triggered by a ruling by the Italian Supreme Court where a rape conviction was overturned because the justices felt that since the victim was wearing tight jeans she must have helped her rapist remove her jeans, thereby implying consent. The following day, the women in the Italian Parliament came to work wearing jeans in solidarity with the victim. Peace Over Violence developed the Denim Day campaign in response to this case and the activism surrounding it. Since then, wearing jeans on Denim Day has become a symbol of protest against erroneous and destructive attitudes about sexual assault. In this rape prevention education campaign we ask community members, elected officials, businesses and students to make a social statement with their fashion by wearing jeans on this day as a visible means of protest against the misconceptions that surround sexual assault. This year’s Denim Day is April 29, 2020.  If you would like more information about how to get involved, email Jennifer Brown at jbrown@staralaska.org.
