Georgia State’s Vagina Monologues

Georgia State’s Student Health Promotion Department is putting on the annual performance of “The Vagina Monologues” on April 7. The casting call was held in February, where females within the student body will be performing a monologue each.

Beginning in the late ‘90s by Eve Ensler, The Vagina Monologues were a response to the systematic violence against women and girls, and gave women of all ages and backgrounds a voice.

The purpose of the monologues are to use their feelings revolving around their genitalia as a source of empowerment.

The performance is centered around a varying amount of monologues taken from interviews Ensler had conducted with women about their experiences. Topics from each monologue include feelings and experiences of sex, love, rape, birth, menstruation, masturbation, orgasms and other gendered issues the women had faced.

Arising from the popularity of “The Vagina Monologues”, V-Day was created. V-Day is a global activist movement to end and raise awareness of violence against women. From Feb. 1 and April 30, the production is performed by colleges and organizations worldwide, where funding is raised for the cause.

Georgia State’s production will take place from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. held in the Urban Life Building Auditorium.
