‘Scandal’ star Kerry Washington has revealed that the play ‘The Vagina Monologues’ inspired her to become part of a movement to end domestic violence.

The 37-year-old star, who has designed a bag for the Allstate 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 in 2000 I had just finished filming ‘Save the Last Dance,’ and my friend 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 to end violence against women,” Washington said.
