Play ‘The Vagina Monologues’ inspired me: Kerry Washington
The 37-year-old star, who has designed a bag for the All state Foundation that carries a message of hope for women suffering from domestic and financial abuse, said it breaks her heart that there is a need for her to campaign against the issue, reported People magazine.
“I actually fell into this work as an artist. Back in2000 I had just finished filming ‘Save the Last Dance,’ and myfriend and co-star Julia Stiles invited me to watch her in Eve Ensler’s play ‘The Vagina Monologues’.
“I was so moved by all these stories of women’s identity,value and worth. After that I became part of the movement toend violence against women,” Washington said.
