Womyn's Equality presents "The Vagina Monologues"

Feb. 12, 2007

KALAMAZOO--Celebrate this Valentine's Day weekend with the members of student organization Womyn's Equality at their performance of Eve Ensler's "The Vagina Monologues" Friday, at 8 p.m. Feb. 16 in the Dalton Center Recital Hall at Western Michigan University. Admission is $5.

Each year near Valentine's Day, thousands of women across the globe perform "The Vagina Monologues" on behalf of the V-Day campaign, which calls for an end to violence against women and girls. WMU Womyn's Equality will donate profits from the show to the campaign.

"The Vagina Monologues" is based on interviews with more than 300 women and focuses on issues women face, including menstruation, sex, rape, and gynecological exams. The show addresses the taboo subject of vaginas with both humor and tragedy. The WMU performance is directed by Angie Pfeffer, co-chair of Womyn's Equality.

"This is not only a great way to celebrate Valentine's Day, but a way for our community to show support for ending violence against women," says Kimberly Pagan, co-chair of Womyn's Equality.
