The Women’s and Gender Studies Student Organization at The University of Southern Mississippi Gulf Park Campus, in conjunction with the Gulf Coast Center for Non-Violence, will present its third annual performance of “The Vagina Monologues” Friday, April 29 at 7 p.m. in the Fleming Education Center Auditorium.

Written by Tony Award-winning playwright, performer and activist Eve Ensler, “The Vagina Monologues” is a performance consisting of a number of monologues read by a diverse group of women and men from different backgrounds.

Throughout the performance, the audience will hear from students, faculty, community members, and members from the Gulf Coast Center for Non-Violence share monologues that deal with various aspects of the feminine experience.

“The purpose of this event is to bring awareness of women and gender issues that are sometimes marginalized but is, instead, reality,” said Mary Maner, alumna and vice president of the Women’s and Gender Studies Student Organization. “It is a way of expressing ourselves, and everyone looks forward to it.”

Admission to “The Vagina Monologues” is free and open to the public, but donations will be accepted. The proceeds will go toward the Women’s and Gender Studies Student Organization and the Gulf Coast Women’s Center for Non-violence to host future events on campus.
