The V-Day Event Of The Decade

Eve Ensler, started a global movement when her play “The Vagina Monologues” hit the stage in the mid ‘90’s. Since then, thousands of grassroots performances have raised more than $50 million and financed more than 5,000 community-based anti-violence programs, supported anti-violence legislation and education as well as safe houses around the world.

V To The Tenth will take place Friday - Saturday, April 11-12 at the New Orleans Arena and Louisiana Superdome bringing thousands of women and men to the city to celebrate V-Day’s ten years of ending violence against women and girls, and to honor the women of New Orleans and the Gulf South.

The Superdome will be transformed into Superlove - a place to heal, gather, celebrate and activate to change the story of women. Superlove will feature two days of revolutionary speakers, slam poets, singers, performers, storytelling, astounding art, and love. Special wellness programs will be available free of charge for the women of the Gulf South including restorative yoga, massage, medical testing, makeovers, and more!

As if all of this wasn’t enough, a star-studded performance will close the two-day celebration on Saturday evening, April 12 at 7:30pm. Together on one stage - Salma Hayek, Oprah Winfrey, Jane Fonda (to name a few) will take the stage on this V-Day for a once in a lifetime benefit event featuring performances of The Vagina Monologues.
