Students, faculty and alumni of the University of New Mexico School of Law will present their fifth annual performance of The Vagina Monologues at 7 p.m. on April 7-9 at the school.
The play was created and performed by Eve Ensler in the mid-1990s following interviews she conducted with 200 women about their views on sex, relationships and violence against women. A few years later, Ensler helped launch the V-Day movement, which authorizes benefit productions of the play to raise money to support groups working to stop violence against women and girls.
Every year, proceeds from the UNM School of Law production benefit a different resource center for women. Proceeds from this year’s production will go to the Esperanza Shelter for Battered Families in Santa Fe.
Tickets cost $10 for general admission or $5 for students and can be purchased at the door; no reservations are required.
The production is sponsored by the UNM Women’s Law Caucus.
