Theater for ending violence

Congratulations and much appreciation to all those involved in the passionate production of “The Vagina Monologues” for V-Day Spokane 2018. All three performances of this groundbreaking play were sold out, and proceeds donated to the YWCA’s Shelter for Domestic Violence. Many thanks to producer Josephine Keefe, director Dawn Taylor Reinhardt, the hardworking crew and the strong performances of cast members who brought to life the powerful voices of women standing up.

Celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, V-Day is a global activist moment to end violence against women and girls, “a catalyst that promotes creative events to increase awareness, raise money, and revitalize the spirit of existing anti-violence organizations.” This production did all this and more, another outstanding example of Spokane voices standing up to be heard.

If you were not able to attend, please consider a donation to the YWCA or another local organization that supports women.
