The Vagina Monologues at Farmingdale State
Eve Ensler's powerful play, The Vagina Monologues, is returning to Farmingdale State for three performances only on March 23rd, 24th, and 25th at 8:00pm in Roosevelt Hall, Loft Lounge.
Productions of The Vagina Monologues are part of the V-Day movement, a series of events that are designed to draw attention to the problem of violence against women. Each year V-Day draws attention to a particular group of women who are experiencing violence, with the goal of raising awareness and funds. On the 60th Anniversary of the end of World War II, V-Day joins in calling for justice to 'Comfort Women' survivors.
The euphemism 'comfort women' was coined by imperial Japan to refer to young females who were forced to offer sexual services to the Japanese troops during the Asia/Pacific Wars between 1932 and 1945.
Tickets are free for Farmingdale State students, $5.00 for Farmingdale State faculty, staff and for other students with I.D. and $8.00 for the general community. Tickets may be purchased on the night of the performance. For further information and for group sales, please contact the Student Activities Office at 631-420-2103.
