THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES
By Eve Ensler, Directed by Cat Wright
Gail Brower Huggins Performance Center, February 3, 5, & 6 – 7:30 PM, 2:00 PM
Produced and presented for the purposes of empowering women and celebrating the vagina, these are The Vagina Monologues. Eve Ensler created these pieces from interviews with more than 200 women resulting in stories about sex, relationships, sexual violence, sex work, menstruation, and more. After speaking with women from all over the world, Ensler was astonished by how uncomfortable everyone felt when speaking of their vagina, many could hardly say the word out loud. She has spent the years since the premiere of The Vagina Monologues trying to erase that taboo through fighting for female empowerment and advocating to stop violence against women, with this show being a step in that direction.
