McKendree Young Feminists Present ‘The Vagina Monologues’ on Feb. 10

Lebanon, Ill. — The McKendree University Young Feminists organization will present “The Vagina Monologues” on Monday, Feb. 10 at 7:30 p.m. at the Hettenhausen Center for the Arts on campus. The public is welcome. Admission is $3 or a donation of canned goods or toiletries. Proceeds will benefit a local charity, Bethany Place, which provides social services in the Metro-East.

“This event is designed to spread awareness about body image, female sexuality, and violence against women,” said Lindsay Hansard, president of the Young Feminists. “Spreading the message of nonviolence against women is important to us.”

Students, faculty and staff members will read or act out episodes from the 1996 play written by Eve Ensler. “The Vagina Monologues” focus on the feminine experience as it relates to sex, relationships, and violence against women.
