Several local anti-violence organizations will hold a bilingual performance of Eve Ensler’s ‘The Vagina Monologues’ as part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month.
Unlike performances held earlier this year at several Iowa universities, this special production of ‘The Vagina Monologues’ features a cast predominately of women of color and will include monologues in both English and Spanish. Translations will be available in both languages.
Ensler’s play, which has been performed in more than 125 countries and in 25 languages since 1996, is based on more than 200 interviews with women worldwide. In a series of monologues, the cast retells a series of diverse experiences with sexuality, childbirth and rape. The play is performed annually across communities and college campuses to raise awareness of worldwide violence against women and girls.
The performance is sponsored by the Women of Color Advisory Network, Iowa Coalition Against Sexual Assault and Hollaback! Des Moines, organizations that each seek to end violence against women and girls in Iowa.
The cost to attend is $10 in advance and $15 at the door. Tickets can be purchased at iowacasa.org.
