V-monologues-80PULLMAN, Wash. – Tickets are on sale for the Washington State University benefit production of “The Vagina Monologues.” Performances will be at 7:30 p.m. Thursday-Saturday, Feb. 19-21, in Daggy Hall.

“The Vagina Monologues” is a collection of stories from a diverse group of women, written and edited by Eve Ensler and Mollie Doyle. They create an eye-opening portrait of violence against women and how it shapes the lives of everyone.

Proceeds will benefit Alternatives to Violence of the Palouse (http://atvp.org/), the nonprofit victim services agency serving Whitman and Latah counties.

Community members are invited to purchase tickets, volunteer to help with the event and/or provide financial support.

V-Day WSU (http://studentinvolvement.orgsync.com/org/vdaywsu), the student group organizing the production, is affiliated with the national V-Day anti-violence organization (http://www.vday.org/). Their mission is to increase awareness about how violence against women and girls affects everyone.

“This production offers individuals in the Pullman and Washington State University communities the opportunity to learn more about violence against women and girls while becoming more comfortable with a word that is generally seen as inappropriate,” said Diana Anucinski, V-Day WSU coordinator.
