MAKE A STATEMENT IN 2012! Eve's "Over It" Piece Added to V-Day Events
This new year, V-Day presents you with a brand new event option to produce as part of your V-Week! Introducing OVER IT 2012. Eve told the world what she is "over" in this powerful new piece.
"There are approximately one billion women on the planet who have been violated.
ONE BILLION WOMEN.
The time is now. Prepare for the escalation.
Today it begins, moving toward February 14, 2013, when one billion women will rise to end rape.
Because we are over it."
There are three ways in which you can incorporate OVER IT into your events.
- Include OVER IT in your reading of "The Vagina Monologues" or "A Memory, A Monologue, A Rant and A Prayer." The piece should be inserted at the very end of the script, after the 2012 Spotlight Monologue.
- Speak Out. Use this piece to inspire a spoken word event during which performers treat OVER IT as a template to express what it is that they are over. Participants should stick to the theme of violence against women.
- V-Team building workshop. Gather your cast and crew and read OVER IT out loud. Then, conduct a 5-10 minute writing exercise, during which everyone writes about they are over. Ask participants to share their rants with the group.
A world in which ONE BILLION women experience sexual violence is unacceptable. Register to host your OVER IT event now at vspot.day.org/signup. The time has come to get active, get OVER IT, and stand together to demand an end to the violence.
With New Year love,
