Eastern to Perform Vagina Monologues

Written by Emily Bonoyer

Willimantic, CT -- Eastern Connecticut State University students, faculty and staff will perform "The Vagina Monologues" on Feb. 10 at 7 p.m. in the Student Center. The theatrical performance will include actresses from Eastern and the larger community who will bring to life various monologues concerning domestic abuse, body issues and reclaiming sexuality.

            "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 each year 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.
