February 12, 2003 Geneva, N.Y.—This weekend, the Women’s Collective Organization at William Smith College will join women’s organizations around the world in celebration of V-Day: Until the Violence Stops, a global movement to end violence against women and girls. For the second year in a row, members of William Smith community will perform a rendition of Eve Ensler’s acclaimed The Vagina Monologues.
A non-profit organization, V-Day leads a global movement through promotion of creative events, programming and campaigns aimed at raising awareness of violence against women and girls. Each year, V-Day funds benefit performances of Ensler’s “The Vagina Monologues,” staged by local volunteers and college students, to raise awareness and to help raise funds for local anti-violence groups.
Performances will be held at 9 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 14, and again at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 15, in the Cellar Pub at the Hobart and William Smith campus in Geneva. The cost of admission is $1 and proceeds will be donated to the Rape and Abuse Crisis Service of the Finger Lakes. All are invited to attend.
