Occupy Wall Street Meets V-Day
On February 26th, V-Day organizers Hannah Morgan and Dakota Russell, together with a group of women involved with Occupy Wall Street (OWS), are putting on a V-Day production of The Vagina Monologues. The cast will include activists from OWS and allied organizations, as well as Eve Ensler, Laura Flanders, Alix Olson, and Terry Tempest Williams. All ticket proceeds will benefit The National Domestic Workers Alliance and The Voices of Women Organizing Project (VOW). Following is a note from the organizers:
The Occupy Wall Street Movement has lit a spark of potential in the hearts and minds of millions of people who were previously isolated in their struggle against the crushing forces of debt, foreclosures, police brutality, the prison industrial complex, environmental disasters, and the endless assaults of corporatization and free market capitalism. We have arrived at a point in time when it is impossible to ignore that injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere, and that no form of oppression occurs in a vacuum, but instead is part of a larger interdependent system. As women we recognize the importance of our collective struggles towards liberation, and we believe that a serious movement towards revolutionary change cannot exist without directly challenging the ways in which patriarchy, domestic violence, misogyny, and rape culture continue to be perpetuated.
It is in the spirit of a unified struggle for liberation against violence that women from Occupy Wall Street present The Vagina Monologues.

The February 16th episode will give viewers a unique and compelling glimpse into Eve's life-story and her work as both a playwright and activist.
The series airs on New York's THIRTEEN on Thursdays at 8:30pm and has featured Glenn Close, Marlo Thomas, Jane Fonda (a V-Day Board member), Arianna Huffington, and Maria Elena Salinas.
