University hosts award-winning "Vagina Monologues"

Students, faculty and staff are taking on the award-winning play "The Vagina Monologues" at California State University, Sacramento to raise awareness and money for the CSUS Women's Resource Center and the SHARE Institute, an organization working to improve the health of women around the world.

Performances are at 8 p.m., Thursday-Saturday, Feb. 13-15 at the University Theatre located in Shasta Hall.

Based on interviews with more than 200 women about their memories and experiences of sexuality, "Monologues" gives voice to women's deepest fantasies and fears. "It's hilarious, empowering, radical and just a really good time," says Jessica Higgins of the CSUS Women's Resource Center. "It's very moving," she says.

There are nearly 660 universities around the world presenting the "Monologues" as part of V-Day, a month-long event that generates funds for organizations and programs working to stop violence against women and girls. In its first five years, the V-Day movement has raised over $14 million, with more than $7 million raised in 2002 alone.

Tickets are $8 for students, $15 for general admission and $10 for groups of 10 or more. They can be purchased at the CSUS Ticket office at (916) 278-4323 or

Media assistance is available from the CSUS public affairs office at (916) 278-6156.
