May 17th marks San Francisco’s first Asian Pacific American Vagina Monologues co-presented by NAPAWF & V-Day SF
SAN FRANCISCO, CA – On May 17, 2012, women activists will take the main stage at the historic Castro Theatre for an Asian Pacific American production of Eve Ensler's The Vagina Monologues. The National Asian Pacific American Women’s Forum (NAPAWF) and V-Day San Francisco proudly co-present the Asian Pacific American Vagina Monologues in celebration of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month.
Directed by resident Bay Area artist Gabrielle Patacsil, this production features an all Asian Pacific American women-identified cast and production team. This performance is about igniting change, raising the issues of Asian Pacific American women, and ending violence (of all forms) against women everywhere. All show proceeds benefit non profit women’s organizations that are committed to stopping violence against women.
“This wonderful production highlights the dangers and discrimination that women face each and every day, particularly among the Asian American Pacific Islander community. Themes of social, economic and political equity for all women are intricately woven into this performance that is as much about social commentary as it is about entertainment. ”
- Congresswoman Judy Chu, first Chinese American woman member of U.S. House of Representatives, Chair of Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus (CAPAC)
