“A collective story is very powerful, especially for the feminist movement and for women to be out there and tell their stories,” the play's director Amy Quichiz said.

Twenty-five people performed various skits from the episodic play "The Vagina Monologues" Friday night in Hendricks Chapel to talk about women’s often-taboo experiences, from gender violence to positive sexual experiences. 

Students Advocating Sexual Safety and Empowerment produce the play every spring semester to promote self-love and raise public’s attention to misogyny, according to the student organization’s bio.

The Student Association for Sexual Safety and Empowerment put on its annual benefit performances of "The Vagina Monologues" on campus this weekend.

“Let’s start with the word ‘vagina”, begins Eve Ensler’s play, “‘The Vagina Monologues;’ “it sounds like an infection at best, a medical instrument maybe.”

Originally created as a celebration of vaginas and sexual empowerment, “The Vagina Monologues” has become a widespread art movement about ending sexual violence against women.
