Carleton College will present its annual student-produced and performed production of Even Ensler’s “Vagina Monologues” on Saturday, Feb. 23 at 7 p.m. in the Skinner Memorial Chapel. The public is invited and there is a suggested donation of $5 to $15 at the door. All proceeds will benefit The Hope Center in Faribault and the V-Day Spotlight Campaign (, a global movement to end violence against women and girls.


First performed in 1994, playwright and activist Eve Ensler’s play “The Vagina Monologues” “offered the world a piece of art like nothing it had seen before,” says student coordinator Lauren Chow ’14 (Weston, Mass.). The ground breaking production was based on dozens of interviews Ensler conducted with women, addressing women's sexuality and the social stigma surrounding rape and abuse. The result was a new conversation about and with women.
