Bethlehem, Pa., February 22, 2005— Moravian College’s student activities program board IMPACT, will present the Vagina Monologues on Saturday, February 26 and Sunday, February 27 at 2:00 p.m. in Prosser Auditorium, in the Haupert Union Building.
This year marks the third time in three years that the Vagina Monologues have been performed at Moravian. Over 50 Moravian students are involved in this year’s production. “The Vagina Monologues provides an opportunity for female students to express their views on a variety of important issues affecting women in society,” said Stephanie Hachey ’05, one of the narrators for this year’s performance. “By addressing issues directly, through frank and open monologues, the program is an effective means for raising awareness about the challenges women face today.”
The Vagina Monologues were created by Eve Ensler and are performed along with the V-Day campaign. According to the web site http://www.vday.org/main.html, “V-Day is a global movement to stop violence against women and girls. V-Day is a catalyst that promotes creative events to increase awareness, raise money and revitalize the spirit of existing anti-violence organizations. Through V-Day campaigns, local volunteers and college students produce annual benefit performances of The Vagina Monologues to raise awareness and funds for anti-violence groups within their own communities. In 2004, over 2000 V-Day benefit events were presented by volunteer activists in the U.S. and around the world, educating millions of people about the reality of violence against women and girls.”
General Admission is $7 and $5 for students with ID. For ticket information, please contact VDayMoCo@hotmail.com or call 610 861-1491.
