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

Social Media has become one of society's main news sources, I hope that the Bridge can help students bring awareness to what will affect them as students or just as human beings. One of my main passions is music, no matter the format, but especially live performances, I love everything about music. I hope that with this platform there can be more of a highlight on local artists (all kinds: poetry, sculpture, dance, the list goes on). If you are or know of any artists that you would like to see in the Bridge please email or tweet me and we’ll check them out! Interests: Music, Pop Culture, Art
