Please join in our support for The Next Step Domestic Violence Project, Downeast Sexual Assault services and women all over the world who have experienced violence. The Vagina Monologues is a collection of pieces on a particular topic performed by an all female cast. It is very funny at times, very explicit at others but it is always powerful.  There are performances organized yearly by women all over the world in order to raise money and awareness in their own towns.  Each year the author, Eve Ensler, chooses a place in the world or a population of women who  need help and need to be heard.  This year the spotlight is on the Democratic Republic of Congo.  Over 300 thousand women and girls in the DRC have been tortured or raped as a systematic tactic of war.  90% of the money earned through this performance will go directly to local organizations and 10 % will go to the national V-day organization for the work they are doing in the DRC.
