“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 night consisted of a candle-lit vigil and a performance of Even Ensler's "The Vagina Monologues."

University students, faculty and members of the Syracuse community gathered at Hendricks Chapel on Friday night to participate in SU Rising: Stop Sexual and Relationship Violence. Students and community members reflected on the problems of domestic violence and sexual assault that occur on Syracuse University’s campus and around the world.

The SU Rising: Stop Violence Against Women event was held on Valentine's Day to bring attention to the issue of sexual violence against women across the globe.

An eight-member panel sat at Hendrick’s Chapel to break the silence on sexual violence against women.

The panel included Paul Ang, Himika Bhattacharya, Janet Epstein, Tula Goenka, Laura Hollohan, Lynn S. Levey, Rock Olanoff and Jennifer Shaw. The subject under discussion was grave, contentious and hurtful.

The cast of this year's performances was split in two to emphasize the individuality of the monologues.

The monologues are the same, but the performances are uniquely their own.

The Vagina Monologues was performed four times at Syracuse University this year as usual. But this year there were two different casts with a total of 34 performers.

The Vagina Monologues is an episodic play written in 1996 featuring a varying number of monologues about female empowerment. College students across the nation put on The Vaginas Monologues as annual benefit performances to help survivors of domestic violence and raise awareness.
