Until The Violence Stops features playwright and activist Eve Ensler in a film that documents how The Vagina Monologues inspired the international grass-roots movement "V-Day."
In 2002, about 800 cities around the world participated in "V-Day" by staging benefit performances of The Vagina Monologues. Until the Violence Stops explores the impact of this event on five communities affected by violence against women. Featuring interviews and readings by everyday and celebrity women, Until the Violence Stops shows women from New York to Kenya uniting and revealing intimate and painful experiences with abuse.
