FSA Presents: The Vagina Monologues

Event Type: Theatre
Facility: Theatre 2 (THR)
Presented By: Feminist Student Alliance
Description: 
Each year the Feminist Student Alliance at USF hosts a production of Eve Enslerís "The Vagina Monologues." This collection of womenís personal stories originally started in 1996 at the HERE Arts 
Center. The popularity to the show progressed so much that Ensler was contacted by many celebrities and eventually HBO, who taped a show in 1998. Ensler again decided to give back to the 
community by founding VDay, which was originally held on Valentineís Day, with the mission to stop violence against women and girls. Today many collegiate and community groups all over the world 
host their own productions of "The Vagina Monologues" in order to raise awareness about violence committed against women and girls of all ages."

Furthermore, the 2010 Feminist Student Alliance's production of The Vagina Monologues is a series of various performances from Eve Ensler's original, with a selection of two additional pieces which 
strive to encompass and reach out to all women, of all ethnicities. The two additional pieces are also written by Eve Ensler. The piece, titled, "Hey, Miss Pat", is a monologue about the travesties that 
occurred following Hurricane Katrina and the government's failure to send immediate aid. The second piece, titled, "Crooked Braid", regards a Native American woman in an intense physically abusive 
relationship with her husband. 

All proceeds raised from both performances benefit the local domestic abuse shelter, The Spring of Tampa Bay, with a small portion also going to VDAY. This year we are hoping to match and thus 
exceed our previous year's donation of $2,000.
