L.A.’s red-letter day

'Vagina warriors' view scenes from Ensler docu, monologues

HOLLYWOOD — The Directors Guild Theater took on a crimson glow Monday when guests donning red boas and attire gathered to fight violence against women at V-Day L.A.’s 2003 fundraising event, benefiting the Los Angeles Commission on Assaults Against Women.

No one was looking through rose-tinted glasses, however, as guests viewed scenes from “Vagina Monologues” playwright Eve Ensler’s upcoming documentary, “Until the Violence Stops,” and were treated to new monologues by Rosario Dawson and Shiva Rose.

“There is a vagina revolution afoot,” Ensler exclaimed. “And make no mistake about it, it’s going to win.”

Carrie-Anne Moss, who saw an original production of “The Vagina Monologues” with best friend Maria Bello, said, “I was so inspired, moved and horrified by it, that when she told me about this I had to come and support it.”

Dawson reveled in the chance to express her voice in the event, noting, “so often the only thing that celebrities are asked about is what lipstick they’re wearing.”

Other “vagina warriors” included Melanie Griffith, Christine Lahti, Elisa Donovan, Brooke Shields, Dylan McDermott, Tia Carrere and Rachel Leigh Cook.
