The actress came to Iceland in 2002 to participate in V-day celebrations, a global movement to end violence against women and girls, held on February 14 the same year. She performed in the City Theater in Reykjavík where V-day was honored with dance, song and music.

Hatcher performed a scene from Eve Enslers’s Vagina Monologues. Ensler is one of the founders of the V-day movement, established in 1998.

Hatcher also participated in a Broadway performance of the piece, and since her first appearance in the play, she has done her share in the fight against domestic violence. She told mbl.is that she would have liked to have been introduced to the play in her youth.

“I remember the reception we received from a male audience to Vagina Monologues, who said he wished he had seen the play when he was younger; it would have helped him connect with women,” Hatcher told mbl.is.

“A lot of men were reluctant to attend the performance as they didn’t know what to expect. Usually they enjoyed the performance,” Hatcher added.
