Women in Support of Humanity (WISH) at Quinnipiac is hosting “The Vagina Monologues” on Feb. 17, a play of monologues dealing with different aspects of being a women. The nationally performed production, written by Eve Ensler, is used to provide awareness for female empowerment and, according to Ian Zeitlin, the president of WISH at Quinnipiac, show peoples truths of womanhood in an artistic way.
Hannah Cotter, a junior at Quinnipiac, is performing for the second time in "The Vagina Monologues" this weekend.
“For me, personally, I enjoy doing it because I do it with a couple of my friends and it’s a good opportunity to talk about the things that matter but in light sense,” Cotter said. “You’re kind of forcing people to talk about things that make them uncomfortable and making it light-hearted.”
The overarching purpose is to speak out against female oppression and tell real stories of women who faced adversity.
The Vagina Monologues will take place in the Buckman Center on Saturday, Feb. 17 at 5 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at the door for $5 cash or Q-card and all the money will benefit the Rape Abuse and Incest National Network, also known as RAINN.
