The Vagina Monologues

Students and faculty will be featured in The Women’s Collective’s production of the Obie Award-winning “The Vagina Monologues,” which will be presented at 7 p.m. Friday, Feb. 17 and again at 2 p.m. Saturday, the 18th in the Geneva Room of the Warren Hunting Smith Library.

An original production by Eve Ensler, “The Vagina Monologues” is a gathering of female voices, of collective experiences, whirlwind emotions, and newly voiced desires.

“Ensler shatters traditional taboos by speaking about such topics as menstruation, sexual violence, and female empowerment. In a world where violence against women is prevalent, Ensler’s work ultimately celebrates the female body and reclaims authority, beauty, and respect for women all over the world.”

Organizers say, “The Vagina Monologues” is an essential component of the V-Day Movement, which is a global effort to end violence against women and girls.

Proceeds from the weekend productions will benefit the V-day spotlight campaign to stop violence against women, and Safe Harbors, a rape and abuse crises center of the Finger Lakes.
