“Ensler worked to remedy this with a group of trans women who performed The Vagina Monologues in February 2004. A film, Beautiful Daughters, directed and produced by Josh Aronson and Ariel Orr Jordan, recorded the event and had its premiere early in 2006, including Ensler’s new monologue. “

V is for WHAT?

V-Day, which is loosely affiliated with the production of Beautiful Daughters and The Vagina Monologues, is a non-profit corporation that distributes funds to grassroots national, and international organizations and programs that work to stop violence against women and girls. It’s also a grassroots organization that’s prominent in the battle for heightened sensitivity for the needs and priorities of transgendered persons.
