The playwright and activist Eve Ensler wrote “The Vagina Monologues,” first produced in 1996, based on hundreds of interviews with women of various social, ethnic, religious and sexual backgrounds and ages. The collection of monologues about women’s experiences with sensuality, pleasure, discomfort, and violence has been performed internationally and on television. Each year, Ensler updates the monologues based on new and ongoing interviews with women around the world. Ensler also co-founded V-Day, an organization committed to global efforts against violence against women and girls.
“The Vagina Monologues” will run for two performances in UNCG’s Elliott University Center Auditorium – on Friday, Feb. 13, and Saturday, Feb. 14. Both performances are at 7 p.m.
The event is general admission; doors open 30 minutes before show time.
A $5 donation is suggested, and t-shirts, V-Day themed food, and buttons will be available for purchase. All proceeds go to Clara House and the V-Day Campaign.
The play is being sponsored by UNCG’s Housing & Residence Life Social Justice & Diversity Initiatives, Residence Hall Association, The Wellness Center and Elliott University Center.
