Rosario Dawson, Jane Fonda, Thandie Newton, and Kerry Washington invite you to celebrity the birthday of V-Day founder Eve Ensler next month at a special charity evening in New York City.

Viva Vevolution will celebrate V-Day’s revolutionary work to end violence against women and girls around the world, and will honor Novo Foundation and V-Day Board member Jennifer Buffett with the Stone Award for her extraordinary philanthropy and vision.

V-Day is a global movement to stop violence against women and girls. It is a catalyst that promotes creative events to increase awareness, raise money and revitalize the spirit of existing anti-violence organizations. V-Day generates broader attention for the fight to stop violence against women and girls, including rape, battery, incest, female genital mutilation and sexual slavery.

Eve Ensler created V-Day, after her experiences performing her play, The Vagina Monolgues, inspired her to take further action towards stopping violence against women. Ensler’s City of Joy, a village where Congolese women go to heal and retrain, opened in DRC in February 2011.

The event takes place at the Urban Zen Center at Stephan Weiss Studio, 711 Greenwich Street, NYC, on June 8. More information can be found here.
