Vagina Monologues to be Performed at Eastern

Written by Allison Kelly

Willimantic, Conn. - Eastern Connecticut State University students, faculty and staff, along with Willimantic community members, will perform various monologues concerning domestic abuse, body issues and reclaiming sexuality in Eastern's yearly production of "The Vagina Monologues." The monologues will be performed at 7 p.m. on March 12 and March 13 in the Student Center Theatre at Eastern.

The Vagina Monologues were written in 1996 by performance artist Eve Ensler. In drafting her early monologues, Ensler conducted interviews with 200 women on the subjects of sex, relationships and violence against women. Since 1996, a new monologue has been added to the performance to highlight a current issue affecting women around the world.

The Vagina Monologues is part of a global movement known as "V-Day." The "V" in V-Day stands for Valentine, Vagina and Victory, linking love and respect for women to ending violence against them. Participants in the movement stage benefit performances of the Vagina Monologues between Feb. 1 and March 31 to raise money for the cause.
