WESTMINSTER COLLEGE PRESENTS

EVE ENSLER'S

"THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES" 

As part of the V-Day 2009 Campaign, the students of Westminster College, Salt Lake City are proud to present a benefit production of "The Vagina Monologues" to raise awareness and funds for the Salt Lake City Rape Recovery Center, a local organization working to end violence against women and girls.  

WESTMINSTER STUDENTS URGE MEMBERS OF THE SALT LAKE COMMUNITY TO JOIN IN CELEBRATING WOMEN AND RAISNG FUNDS TO END SEXUAL VIOLENCE 

Salt Lake City, Utah- Joining with communities and colleges across the country, students at Westminster College will come together to increase community awareness and raise funds against sexual violence. Westminster College students will present their annual production of Eve Ensler's "The Vagina Monologues.”  The production will open on Thursday, Feb. 5 and will run through Saturday Feb. 7 in the Vieve Gore Concert Hall located on the campus of Westminster College (1840 South 1300 East, Salt Lake City, UT 84105). Ticket prices are $10.  All proceeds will benefit the Salt Lake City Rape Recovery Center and the women currently struggling to overcome violence in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.   

V-Day is a global movement to stop violence against women and girls. V-Day is a catalyst that promotes creative events to increase awareness, raise money and revitalize the spirit of existing anti-violence organizations. V-Day generates broader attention for the fight to stop violence against women and girls, including rape, battery, incest, female genital mutilation (FGM) and sexual slavery. 

Last year, thanks to the generous support of the Salt Lake community, Westminster College raised nearly $12,000 benefiting the Salt Lake City Rape Recovery Center. Concessions and a silent auction at the productions of "The Vagina Monologues" will also benefit the Salt Lake City Rape Recovery Center. The Clothesline Project, a visual representation of victims of sexual and domestic violence, will also be displayed during the shows.  

Other events of interest include self-defense classes (1/27 and 1/30), a clothing drive fundraiser (2/3), a Congo teach-in (1/26), and a V-Men discussion (2/6), all hosted at Westminster College.

The V-Day Mission


V-Day is an organized response against violence toward women.

V-Day is a vision: We see a world where women live safely and freely.

V-Day is a demand: Rape, incest, battery, genital mutilation and sexual slavery must end now.

V-Day is a spirit: We believe women should spend their lives creating and thriving rather than surviving or recovering from terrible atrocities.

V-Day is a catalyst: By raising money and consciousness, it will unify and strengthen existing anti-violence efforts. Triggering far-reaching awareness, it will lay the groundwork for new educational, protective, and legislative endeavors throughout the world.

V-Day is a process: We will work as long as it takes. We will not stop until the violence stops.

V-Day is a day. We proclaim Valentine's Day as V-Day, to celebrate women and end the violence.

V-Day is a fierce, wild, unstoppable movement and community. Join us!
