Cal Poly Pomona will host performances of Eve Ensler's Obie Award-winning play The Vagina Monologues at 7 p.m. on Feb. 11, 17 and 18 in the Bronco Student Center's Ursa Major Suite. The Feb. 17 performance will be in Spanish. In addition, a Vagina Fair featuring information from on-campus clubs, departments and outside organizations, will begin at 5:30 p.m.
Proceeds will benefit the YWCA WINGS Domestic Violence Program and the university's Stop Violence Grant Office.
Cal Poly Pomona's productions will overlap with hundreds of others around the world recognizing V-Day, a campaign to end sexual violence against women and to proclaim Valentine's Day as the day to celebrate women and demand the end of abuse. During V-Day, theatrical and artistic events are produced in local, national and international venues to raise money and awareness about sexual violence.
Sponsors of the performances include the Stop Violence Office, Pride Center, ASI B.E.A.T., the Cesar E. Chavez Center for Higher Education, QSafe, ReEntry & WoMens Resource Center, and TEAAR Theatre Group.
Tickets are $10 for students and $15 general. For more information, call the Stop Violence Office at (909) 869-3102 or (909) 869-3112.
