V-Day Performance - First time in Nepal

December 01st, 2006 at Royal Nepal Academy

HELP/Nepal is proud to set on stage, for the first time in Nepal and in Nepali, the worldwide known and poignant show "The Vagina Monologues", inspired by Eve's Ensler book.

Hundreds of women told her their stories of rape, incest, domestic battery and genital mutilation. It was clear that something widespread and dramatic needed to be done to stop that violence.

WE DID IT!

V-Day

Thus, V-Day was created; and, up to now, the theater-show has been performed in over 80 countries. It has been distributing funds to grassroots, national and international organisations and running programs that work to stop violence against women and girls, throughout the world, from Europe to Asia, Africa and the Americas.

Therefore, HELP/Nepal decided to take the lead in sensitising Nepalese society on gender-related abuses and proudly joined the main V-day goal: stopping violence against women and girls! (More info on http://events.vday.org/2006/World/Kathmandu).
