Eve Ensler

Ensler is a prominent activist addressing issues of violence against women and girls. In 1998, her experience performing The Vagina Monologues inspired her to create V-day, a global activist movement to stop violence against women and girls. V-day raises funds and awareness through annual benefit productions of The Vagina Monologues. In 2010, more than 5,400 V-day events took place in over 1,500 locations in the U.S. and around the world. To date, the V-day movement has raised $100 million and educated millions about the issue of violence against women and the efforts to end it, crafted international educational, media and PSA campaigns, launched the Karama program in the middle east, reopened shelters, and funded over 12,000 community based anti-violence programs and safe houses in Democratic Republic of Congo, Haiti, Kenya, South Dakota, Egypt, and Iraq.
