“Grrrls Night” is a bi-monthly discussion group for any student who identifies as a womxn. We use an inclusive definition of “womxn” where trans womxn, genderqueer womxn, and non-binary people are welcome. This is meant to be a brave space for womxn to connect, raise consciousness, discuss current events, learn, heal, and do self-care work and activities.

 

Vagina Monologues

7:00 pm

University Theater

V-Team and Women’s Resource Center

The Vagina Monologues is made up of a varying number of monologues read by a varying number of women. Each of the monologues deals with an aspect of the feminine experience, touching on matters such as sex, love, rape, menstruation, female genital mutilation, masturbation, birth, orgasm, the various common names for the vagina, or simply as a physical aspect of the body. A recurring theme throughout the piece is the vagina as a tool of female empowerment, and the ultimate embodiment of individuality. English and Spanish productions of the Vagina Monologues are performed annually. Tickets will be sold via Eventbrite.
