Until The Violence Stops

Join us for a V-Day benefit screening of award-winning documentary film:

Saturday, February 26th
State Theater, 333 Oak St. Red Bluff
(Admission is $3 or FREE with your The Vagina Monologues presale ticket)

Until the Violence Stops shows women from Harlem to Ukiah, CA; from the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation to the Philippines and Kenya, uniting and courageously revealing their intimate and deeply painful experiences with abuse ranging from rape to female circumcision.

Director Abby Epstein takes us on a poignant journey into the hearts of women and includes revealing testimonies from men, who expose social and cultural attitudes that perpetuate the pervasive violence against women.

In emotionally charged interviews and performances, everyday women and celebrities like Rosie Perez, Salma Hayek, Tantoo Cardinal, Jane Fonda, and LisaGay Hamilton embrace their bodies, reconcile their past, and bond together to break the silence that surrounds abuse.
Proceeds raised will benefit Girls Inc. NSV and help us "inspire all girls to be STRONG, SMART, and BOLD!
