Women have made great strides in the fight for equality, but gender bias and discrimination continues for many—especially immigrants, women of color, women with low incomes, victims of domestic violence, and women in our nation’s prison systems. International Women’s Day is an opportunity to to re-dedicate ourselves to the ongoing struggle for gender equity in all sectors of society. 

Toward that end, the ACLU of Nevada invites you to attend a Las Vegas performance of “Any One of Us: Words from Prison”, a collection of monologues that give voice to the struggles of incarcerated women in the United States. Eye-opening, moving, and fiercely honest, “Any One of Us” examines what it means to be a woman in prison and the violence and discrimination that often propels them there in the first place. 

The performance, organized by local activist and educator Tia Taymar, is a part of V-Day, an international festival focused on women’s rights. For the fourth year in a row the ACLU is partnering with V-Day to join the global movement to end violence against women and girls and to educate the world about the experiences of women in prison.

In 2009, benefit productions of “Any One Of Us” will be held nationwide during the recognized V-Season of February to April. Proceeds from the Las Vegas performance will be used in support of local street teens and educational programs centered on diversity and tolerance.
