Arts & Entertainment WCU will host ‘The Vagina Monologues’

Western Carolina University's Department of Intercultural Affairs will host “The Vagina Monologues” at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Feb. 10-11, in the A.K. Hinds University Center Grandroom.

“The Vagina Monologues” is a series of 18 monologues written by Eve Ensler with one straightforward message: to end violence against women and girls all over the world. Ensler, an activist, writer and performer, wrote the play in 1996 after she interviewed dozens of females with stories of violence against women and the struggles women face in society. Female students and staff of WCU stage the play annually in recognition of V-day, which is a global movement to bring awareness to people about female sexuality, relationship, and violence against women.

Proceeds from “The Vagina Monologues” will go to local beneficiaries such as REACH of Jackson County, Clean Slate Coalition and the WCU Sexual Violence Awareness Fund.

Tickets can be purchased in advanced in A.K Hinds University Center in room 334 for $5. Tickets will be sold for $7 at the door. For more information, contact Sarah Carter at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or call 828-227-2617.
