"The Vagina Monologues" Part of World-Wide Campaign to End Sexual Violence

As part of a global movement to end violence against girls and women, Cal Poly Pomona will host performances of Eve Ensler's Obie Award-winning play ?The Vagina Monologues? on Feb. 13 and 14 at 8 p.m. in the Bronco Student Center's Ursa Major Suite.

The university's effort 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.

This year?s performances at Cal Poly Pomona will benefit Spotlight on Missing & Murdered Women in Juarez, Mexico; the YWCA WINGS Domestic Violence Program; and the Stop Violence Grant Office.

Tickets are $15 general admission and $10 for students with identification. For information or reservations, call the Pride Center at (909) 869-2573.

The university production is made possible by numerous campus organizations, including the Pride Center, Stop Violence Grant Office, Cesar E. Chavez Center for Higher Education, QSAFE, Office of Student Life & Cultural Centers, and Re-Entry & WoMen?s Resource Center.
