V-Day Albright College 2012 presents

The Vagina Monologues



Join us on March 3rd at 2:00p.m. for the student-directed, student-run, and student-acted, performance of Eve Ensler's The Vagina Monologues which will help to fight against violence in women and girls "Until the Violence Stops."

V-Day is a global activist movement to en...d violence against women and girls. V-Day is a catalyst that promotes creative events to increase awareness, raise money, and revitalize the spirit of existing anti-violence organizations. V-Day generates broader attention for the fight to stop violence against women and girls, including rape, battery, incest, female genital mutilation (FGM), and sex slavery.

The Vagina Monologues is based on V-Day Founder/playwright Eve Ensler's interviews with more than 200 women. With humor and grace the piece celebrates women’s sexuality and strength. Through this play and the liberation of this one word, countless women throughout the world have taken control of their bodies and their lives. For more than twelve years, The Vagina Monologues has given voice to experiences and feelings not previously exposed in public.

Tickets are $3 per person and can be bought at the door. Seating will be limited to 270 seats so be sure to get there early!

Donations will also be accepted at the door. 90% of our proceeds will go to our beneficiary, and 10% of the proceeds go to the V-Day spotlight campaign which will again focus on the women and girls of Haiti. The Spotlight will highlight the high levels of violence against women and girls in Haiti, and will focus on the increased rates of sexual violence since the devastating earthquake that took place in January 2010. All funds raised through the Spotlight Campaign will be used to support a revolutionary national program in Haiti lead by a coalition of women activists - including longtime V-Day activist Elvire Eugene - that is addressing sexual violence through art, advocacy, safe shelter, and legal services.
