(March 14, 2014) --As part of Women's History Month, V-Day UTSA will present a one-night-only benefit reading of Eve Ensler's award-winning play "The Vagina Monologues" at 6 p.m., Tuesday, March 18, in the Arts Building Recital Hall on the UTSA Main Campus. This year's production will feature a cast of UTSA students, faculty and staff from the V-Day UTSA Committee.

Admission is free with a donation of clothing, toiletries and similar necessities, or $5 without a donation. All proceeds will benefit the Rape Crisis Center and Family Violence Prevention Services Inc., two local nonprofit organizations.

"The Vagina Monologues" is a theatrical production of several monologues written by Ensler that openly addresses issues such as sexuality, bodily image, sexual assault and gender inequalities in an effort to bring awareness and healing to violence against women.

The interviews that inspired the individual monologues compelled Ensler to create V-Day, a global activist movement to stop violence against women and girls. Through V-Day, local volunteers and college and university students produce annual performances of "The Vagina Monologues" to raise awareness and funds for anti-violence groups within their communities.

The V-Day UTSA committee is comprised of representatives from UTSA Student Health Services, UTSA Counseling Services, UTSA Women's Studies Institute, UTSA Police Department, UTSA Department of English, UTSA Housing and Residence Life, UTSA Student Center for Community Engagement and Inclusion and UTSA Student Conduct and Community Standards.
