Violet

As a girl, Violet was struck by a wayward axe blade when her father was chopping wood, leaving her with a visible scar across her face. With enough money finally saved, she's traveling across the Deep South in 1964 towards a miracle—the healing touch of a TV evangelist who will make her beautiful. Although she may not succeed in having the scar on her face healed, Violet is able to repair those scars that are lying deeper than her skin. On the way, she meets a young, African-American soldier whose love for her reaches far past her physical "imperfections." –Music Theatre International

#ShoutYourAbortion & Collective Sex: Storytelling as Activism Tour

Two major figures in the movement discuss creative abortion storytelling as activism. Amelia Bonow created #ShoutYourAbortion to give women a means of telling their personal stories, which went viral and evolved into a full-fledged campaign. Poppy Liu documented her abortion story in the short film Names of Women, and will relate how being a queer woman of color influenced her storytelling and why intersectionality is essential in the discourse about reproductive rights.
