The Vagina Monologues
In March 2011, I and eight of my female colleagues performed the Vagina Monologues by Eve Ensler, in front of 500 spectators in the European Parliament in Brussels.
The cross party call was part of a campaign to raise public and EU decision makers’ awareness on the importance of ending violence against women and girls in Europe and around the world, affirming womens’ rights to choose her life, as well as to embrace her sexuality.
Statistically every second women in Europe has been beaten, raped or sexually abused, usually by a man she knows. This has to stop! In 2013 we must require all womens’ right to live a safe and secure life all over Europe.
