Culver City Joins Anti-Violence V-Day Movement

Antioch University in Culver City will host a production of Eve Ensler's 'The Vagina Monologues.' V-Day - aimed at ending violence against women and girls - was inspired by Ensler's play.

Culver City will join a global stand fighting violence against women and girls this week with V-Day's 1 Billion Rising events.

Feb. 14 marked the 15th anniversary of V-Day, a self-described activist movement to end the violence and serve as a catalyst to promote creative events to increase awareness, raise money and revitalize the spirit of existing anti-violence organizations. Through V-Day, local volunteers and college students produce benefit performances, teach-ins, workshops, dances and other events in their own communities.

V-Day was inspired by Even Ensler's play The Vagina Monologues and on Saturday night Feb. 16 at 7:30 p.m. Culver City's Antioch University's Los Angeles campus will present a production of  the play in conjunction with One Billion Rising - a global initiative aimed at ending domestic violence and promoting gender equality - and the 15th anniversary of V-Day

The show will take place at 400 Corporate Pointe. For information and tickets contact: Karen Hamilton, Antioch, (310) 578-1080, ext. 125.
