V-Day Vagina Monologues
7:00 pm
Strong Auditorium
College Feminists, Susan B. Anthony Institute for Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies
College Feminists are bringing awareness to V-Day, a global movement to end violence against women and girls, by hosting a benefit production of Eve Ensler’s award-winning play “The Vagina Monologues.”

This special interdisciplinary event intertwines a multitude of inequality issues with the performing arts for all members of the community. It’s an event that allows folks of all genders across all cultures to participate in V-day to celebrate and honor the women and girls in our lives and community, to be part of a collective voice, a voice that says NO to violence.

We will be donating all profits from our event to the Sojourner House at PathStone in the 19th Ward.
$5 for students (can purchase with UROs at Common Market), $8 for public
