Rhodes Active in Stopping Violence Against Women


Publication Date: 2/3/2009

Rhodes students, faculty, and staff are involved this week in activities designed to raise awareness about violence against women. The culminating activity is the 9th annual Rhodes production of Eve Ensler′s award-winning “The Vagina Monologues.”

The performance runs February 5-7 in Blount Auditorium. There will be an information fair set up at 6:30 p.m. before the Rhodes production begins at 7 p.m. Tickets may be purchased at the door.

“The Vagina Monologues,” which was first performed off-Broadway, dives into the mystery, humor, pain, power, wisdom, outrage and excitement buried in women’s experiences. Hailed by The New York Times as "funny" and "poignant" and by the Daily News as "intelligent" and "courageous," Ensler has performed the play to great acclaim throughout the world. She also is founder of V-Day, a global movement to stop violence against women and girls.
