The Vagina Monologues by Eve Ensler--the performance was a benefit for Community Violence Solutions.

Women from the entire East Bay unite to join V-Day 2010 Richmond.

“Somehow the Craneway Pavillion seems an appropriate venue,” said Clay David, who is helping to produce The Vagina Monologues. The venue is in the Rosie the Riveter National Park, he explained. "The V-Day Movement possesses a very ‘We Can Do It’ grassroots effort. It’s a movement that started small, in colleges throughout the Country, and it’s done magnificent work.”
Proceeds from the Richmond production of The Vagina Monologues will go to Community Violence Solutions (CVS).
Since 1974, CVS has served as the umbrella organization for Rape Crisis of Contra Costa and Marin Counties, while providing a wide range of services to child and adult victims of sexual violence, their families and the community.
V-Day Until the Violence Stops is a global movement to stop violence against women and girls worldwide. V-Day is a catalyst that promotes creative events to increase awareness, raise money and revitalize the spirit of existing anti-violence organizations. V-Day generates broader attention for the fight to stop violence against women and girls, including rape, battery, incest, female genital mutilation (FGM) and sexual slavery.
