Charlize Theron attended the V-Day Cocktails and Conversation with Eve Ensler even yesterday in West Hollywood. 

Eve Ensler is a Tony Award winning playwright and performer of the Vagina Monologues.  Ensler formed V-Day to combat violence against women and girls. Read a brief synopsis of V-Day below.

Other notables attending the event were actresses Jessica Alba and Kerry Washington.  See photos below.

"Ms. Ensler's experience performing THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES inspired her to create V-Day, a global movement to stop violence against women and girls. She has devoted her life to stopping violence, envisioning a planet in which women and girls will be free to thrive, rather than merely survive.

V-Day exists for no other reason than to stop violence against women. In 2001, V-Day was named one of Worth Magazine's "100 Best Charities," in 2006 one of Marie Claire Magazine's Top Ten Charities, and in 2010 was named as one of the Top-Rated organizations on GreatNonprofits. In twelve years, the V-Day movement has raised over $80 million.

V-Day stages large-scale benefits and produces innovative gatherings, films and campaigns to educate and change social attitudes towards violence against women including the documentary Until The Violence Stops..."
