The following comes from a February 8 Times of San Diego article:
The state Assembly Monday passed a resolution authored by Speaker Toni Atkins that declares February 14 to be V-Day in California.
V-Day was established 18 years ago by Eve Ensler, the writer of the acclaimed play The Vagina Monologues, to raise awareness about violence against women and girls.
“V-Day is a worldwide activist movement that seeks to end violence against women and stop the stigma surrounding speaking up against physical and sexual violence,” Atkins said.
On V-Day, groups around the world will perform The Vagina Monologues and the proceeds will go to local programs that support victims of violence and rape.
From February 2013 LifeSiteNews article:
Catholic bishops and college presidents have pointed out that The Vagina Monologues distorts human sexuality and celebrates sinful behaviors, including lesbian activity and masturbation. One scene even declares a lesbian rape of a teenage girl her “salvation” which raised her into “a kind of heaven.”
In 2004, the late Bishop John D’Arcy of the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend wrote in protest against the University of Notre Dame’s performance of the play:
“The Vagina Monologues is offensive to women; it is antithetical to Catholic teaching on the beautiful gift of human sexuality and also to the teachings of the Church on the human body relative to its purpose and to its status as a temple of the Holy Spirit. The human body and the human person, in the tradition of the Church, must never be seen as an object”.
[Students at USD, a Catholic University, are invited to see Vagina Monologues at UCSD on February 16.]
