The Vagina Monologues 2018


The 2018 production of ‘’The Vagina Monologues’ marked the 20th anniversary of the play. The topics touched upon remained as relevant as when the monologues were first performed. The women on stage joined for various reasons and many had never been on stage before. They chose to move out of their comfort zone and raise their voices. And they were heard! Three sold out shows demonstrated the persisting interest and need to keep the discussion going.  

The 2018 spotlight — “Rise. Resist. Unite.” — strongly reflected the current political and social landscape. IAMANEH was invited to talk about the projects they support in Bosnia that aim to end violence against women and girls.

There was an incredible amount of support and love for this production which came in all shapes and forms. This led to the grand total of 7855.61 CHF being donated to Aliena, a local organization which supports female sex workers in Basel.
