Willimantic, Conn. - Eastern Connecticut State University's Women's Center will host Eve Ensler's "The Vagina Monologues" at 7 p.m. on Feb. 21 and Feb. 22 in the Student Center Theatre. The public is invited. Admission is $5 for students and $7 for faculty, staff and the public.
Based on interviews of more than 200 women, the episodic play is a poignant, joyous and heartbreaking examination of female self-discovery. Celebrated and performed across cities and on campuses around the world, the Vagina Monologues give voice to real women's stories of moving past violence, rejection and shame to fully accept their bodies and reclaim their sexuality. All performances will feature Eastern students, faculty and staff, with proceeds donated to the Sexual Assault Crisis Center of Eastern Connecticut, Inc. and Ensler's V-Day campaign, a global movement to end sexual-violence against women and girls.
