Most people might overlook V-day, but BaMatMaBat, a Jerusalem based theater group, is making an effort to bring attention to it. V-day is an international campaign to stop violence against women and girls. It is both a movement and a community of people who work tirelessly to empower women and protect them. On March 27, BaMatMaBat and V-Day in conjunction with the Jerusalem Rape Crisis Center, the outreach center Daila, health care advocate COHI, and self defense organization El Halev invite the public to a V-day performance in Jerusalem. Daila will host the performance, based on essays about violence against women, at their address on 4 Shlomzion HaMalka. Selections from "A Memory, A Monologue, A Rant, and A Prayer" will be read. This award winning compilation of essays was written by women and men from around the globe and edited by Eve Ensler, author of The Vagina Monologues. The performance portrays violence against women in various cultural settings while highlighting the courage, strength and insight that the characters embody. Admission is NIS 50.
