Vagina Monologue

Vagina Monologues

The Vagina Monologues is an international movement to end violence against women and girls, a play written by Eve Ensler. Hamri Bahini- The Green Angels at HCI, has created this annual experience, that lasts over a month, to bring women and young girls from diverse fields and backgrounds together, to bring voices together and bring stories together. This one of a kind experience aims to create a space where women can talk freely and openly about gender, sexuality, sex, vaginas, feminism, women’s rights, and share stories of violence against women and of love. Women are silenced to talk about these topics and experiences. It is either too embarrassing or considered plain taboo. At Hamri Bahini, we believe that not talking about such topics perpetuates more violence. Creating such a safe space, a community and a context enables women to share our collective experiences and support and empower each other. Each year, the show is put together by non-actor women activists from diverse walks of life. The show is also an annual fundraiser event for Hamri Bahini, where all the funds generated goes towards training and employment opportunities for women from marginalized communities at Hamri Bahini. The show has been welcomed with house-full performances each year and has directly touched the lives of hundreds of women who sign-up every year to be part of this annual experience. For those participating directly, V-Day Kathmandu, The Vagina Monologues, has also been a personal journey to embrace their inner girl. – Bivishika Bhandari, V-Day Kathmandu, The Vagina Monologues, Mentor and Director
