   Event Description :

"The Vagina Monologues" at Rhodes will open on Valentine's Day, Feb. 14., and run through Saturday, Feb. 16. in Blount Auditorium. An information fair will be set up at 6:30 p.m. prior to the play that begins at 7:30 p.m. The event is open to the public, and tickets may be purchased at the door or reserved through e-mail at rhodesmonologues@gmail.com. All funds raised will benefit local women's charities.

Last year, more than 1,150 communities hosted V-Day benefits around the world raising funds and awareness to end violence against women. These highly successful events raised over $6 million through the performance of Eve Ensler's award-winning play, "The Vagina Monologues."

Hot on the heels of their success, Rhodes College has joined this global movement as part of the V-Day 2008 College Campaign. Hailed by The New York Times as "funny" and "poignant" and by The Daily News as "intelligent" and "courageous," "The Vagina Monologues" was first performed off-Broadway by Ensler and dives into the mystery, humor, pain, power, wisdom, outrage and excitement buried in women's experiences.

Ensler has performed the play to great acclaim throughout the world. In February 1998, Villard Books/Random House first published The Vagina Monologues, which includes a foreword by Gloria Steinem.
