February 14, 2013

As we told you in this post, the One Billion Rising campaign organized a massive event around the world today.

The goal: to demand an end to violence against women and girls.

As part of the initiative, organizers invited "ONE BILLION women and those who love them to WALK OUT, DANCE, RISE UP, and DEMAND an end to this violence."

One Billion Rising is part of V-Day - a global movement started by Eve Ensler, the Tony Award winning playwright and activist who wrote The Vagina Monologues.

In the video at the top, two of our guests this season - Marisa Tomei and William H. Macy - talk about the impact of The Vagina Monologues.

Take a look. You can also see the full Marisa Tomei interview here and the full William H. Macy interview here.

And on a side note, we've had several guests in the red chair who've performed in The Vagina Monologues including...

Mary Walsh, Rita Moreno, Sandra Oh, and Susie Essman.
