How ‘The Vagina Monologues’ came to be in Japan … and why the play is so relevant now

"The Vagina Monologues," a live show that quickly turned into a social movement, is now a worldwide hit. Since its initial Off-Broadway run in 1996, it has been performed in over 140 countries in scores of languages. It’s emboldened many who identify as female to open up about their experiences with shame and sexual assault. It was also the catalyst that started V-Day, an international organization dedicated to ending violence against women and girls. Today, all proceeds made from a production of "The Vagina Monologues" go to a charity fighting against such injustice.
The empowering play, which is based on actual interviews with over 200 women, has quite literally become a movement.
