The RIT Women’s Center presents its annual production of The Vagina Monologues, performed simultaneously in American Sign Language and English on Feb. 10 and 11.
The 8 p.m. performances are in Ingle Auditorium, Student Alumni Union. Doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets—$5 for students, $8 for faculty and staff and $10 general admission—are available at the Women’s Center (room A450) located in the SAU.
All proceeds from the show go to support the RIT CARES program (Campus advocacy, response and support), a comprehensive program for victims of sexual assault, relationship violence and stalking.
The Vagina Monologues celebrates V-Day—a global movement to stop violence against women and girls. V-Day 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 its first year of incorporation (2001), V-Day was named one of Worth Magazine’s “100 Best Charities.” In seven years, the V-Day movement has raised more than $25 million.
V-Day at RIT is the only production in the country that performs this play simultaneously in two languages.For more information, contact the RIT Women’s Center at 475-7464 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
