Vagina Warriors Perform

Humanities adjunct-extraordinaire Becky Bivens’ Humanities 208 class (Women in the Creative and Performing Arts) will be performing Eve Ensler’s The Vagina Monologues from 3 to 4pm in room 103 TODAY!

From Becky’s email:

The Vagina Warriors of Humanities 208, “Women in the Creative and Performing Arts,” will be performing Eve Ensler’s The Vagina Monologues this upcoming Monday from 3-4pm in room 103, Washington Hall. We’re officially registered with Ensler’s V-Day Campaign.  The performance, which costs $5, will benefit the Chicago Women’s Health Center and the V-Day Spotlight Campaign to end violence against women and girls in Haiti.  We will also be selling cupcakes and cookies, provided the warriors make good on their promise to subvert traditional conceptions of “women’s work” by baking to end sexism.

[Here] is a sneak peek of the program which includes a reproduction of Karen LeCocq’s Feather Cunt (1971). It’s fun, and so are my students!  Announce it in your classes please.  I’m happy to answer any questions as well.

It’s always a great time–challenging, thoughtful, provocative, and beautiful. You surely won’t forget it or regret the cost. Tell your classes!
