The Vagina Monologues at PCC’s Women’s Resource Center, 2018

Katie San Roman

PCC’s Women Resource Center put on it’s 20th V-Day production of Eve Ensler’s play “The Vagina Monologues”, this year’s production included 29 performers and 17 acts included a very special guest, Cheryl Strayed, author of 2012 New Yorks’ best selling book Wild.  

The Vagina Monologues also, known as V-Day, is a global activist movement to end violence against all women and all girls (cisgender, transgender & gender non-conforming.) The proceeds from the production go to raising funds for rape crisis shelters, domestic violence shelters, and local programs for transgender youth, for immigrant women and girls, and many more worthy causes. This year the proceeds will go to Bradley Angle’s Healing Roots Program. Healing Roots provides culturally specific and responsive services for Black and African American survivors of domestic violence.

Every year there is a new monologue added to the performance called the “spotlight monologue” from an area of the world in which women are suffering. In 2008, the spotlight monologue was from Hurricane Katrina, 2011 the spotlight monologue was about a woman from Haiti, Myriam Merlet (an activist and an author, chief of staff for the Ministry for Gender and the Rights of Women of Haiti), last year’s spotlight monologue was about “Violence Against Women In the Workplace”. This year’s spotlight theme was filled with the spirit of the productions for V20: Rise, Resist & Unite embodied in the piece  My Revolution Begins in the Body by Eve Ensler.

About Katie San Roman

I want to major in communications with the hope to minor in public relations. This is my second year at PCC, third year living in Oregon. I was born and raised in California but am soaking up all the beauty of the Pacific Northwest. I love being outdoors regardless if it’s hiking in the mountains or relaxing down by the coast. I am an avid runner, reader, Netflix-binger, food and music lover. You will probably catch me on campus with my headphones on listening to music or downtown at the Roseland or the Crystal Ballroom watching a live show. Whether it’s live music or walking around an art museum, I love being immersed in art. I am very excited to help in the expansioni of The Bridge's social media presence. With my experience of being in charge of the social media for my Younglife area back home under my belt, I’m excited to bring something new to the table. I am very excited to start my first year on The Bridge!
