WPBP Film Night: What I Want My Words To Do To You

February 1, 2013 - 7:00pm

We will begin movie night with a short (10-15 minutes) presentation from Meggie Greivell, an organizer with One Billion Rising. She will speak to V-Day activities on February 14th in the Twin Cities that will address violence against women. The connection with the film is that the Bedford Hills project in the film was begun by Eve Ensler who wrote "The Vagina Monologues." Ensler used her play to organize V-Days and uses some of the same famous actresses that initially read or performed "The Vagina Monologues" (Marisa Tomei, Glenn Close) to perform the writings of the prisoners in Bedford Hill, N.Y. and to perform in the film for them.
