Dancing on Hurt Feet is an innovative performance poetry project featuring the work of three unique women. In a powerful offering, the show is a platform for voices from the margins to emerge and take center stage. It is a celebration of black womanhood that embraces individuality with integrity, solidarity, and humor. In an era of complacent popular culture escapism and an almost entirely absent female voice from the most influential and most internationally exported form of music (hip hop), this project offers an alternative. From the recent series of murders of black and brown people at the hands of the police, to the Ferguson protests, to the "Bring back our girls" tragedy, to the rising domestic sex-trafficking epidemic of teenage girls of color nationwide, it is imperative now more than ever to create a space for the feminine voice: the mothers, wives, daughters and sisters who need to be heard. This project allows difficult issues to be addressed head-on with the vibrancy, intensity and fluidity of free verse poetry.

Say it, Stage it: The Vagina Monologues!

TVM production Say it Stage it

19 years ago, when The Vagina Monologues was first being performed by its playwright Eve Ensler, you couldn't say the word "vagina" on television in the U.S.

REPEAT – you could not say the word Vagina.

Among the many milestones V-Day has had as a movement – including inclusive and healthy public dialogue using the word Vagina and more and more women finding power in saying the word- we continue to face rampant patriarchy, misogyny, and sexism in a multiple ways. Women in Iceland, Poland, Argentina, Tawian and more are taking to the streets and to the stage sharing their stories and demanding their rights.

If ever there was a time to do "The Vagina Monologues", this is it. To quote the play: "Pussies Unite!" Bring the movement to end violence against women and girls to your community. The time is now. Be bolder, speak louder, give everything.

Highlighting voices of women workers:

This year we are inviting V-Day organizers to feature real women's stories on stage the 2017 Spotlight Campaign on Violence Against women in the Workplace. Each production will feature new voices from the community through testimonials written by women workers who have experience violence in the workplace.
