The Vagina Monologues:
Originally a one woman play written by Eve Ensler in 1996, The Vagina Monologues were a collection of women’s thoughts, stories, and experiences relating to vaginas, and ultimately representing themes like female empowerment and struggles, sexual freedom, gender issues, and violence against women. Since then it has become the cornerstone of V-Day, a movement to end violence against women. The play has been performed and adapted on college campuses and local communities all over the country as well as the world.
The Dickinson Vagina Monologues:
Dickinson students will have the opportunity to write and perform their own vagina monologues through a workshop led by Susannah Bartlow, director of the Women’s Center. For those of you who went last year, you remember how amazing the event was! This semester Dickinson College will be collaborating with the Dickinson Law School, whose students will be performing some of the original monologues.
