comment
This weekend, Northeast Ohio will wrap up its two-week festival aimed at raising awareness about violence against women. Known as V-Day: Until the Violence Stops, the event is part of a global movement launched by Eve Ensler, creator of The Vagina Monologues. Through plays, spoken-word performances and community events, the festival tries to educate people about crimes against women while raising money for rape crisis centers and other organizations. Highlights from this weekend include a collection of monologues called A Memory, A Monologue, A Rant and A Prayer, at 7:30 p.m. Friday at the main branch of the Akron-Summit County Public Library, 60 S. High St., and a rally after the Indians game at Jacob’s Field Sunday. For tickets and more information… -- Lisa Rab
