The Women’s Resource Center Presents 10th Annual V-Week

The Women’s Resource Center at Truman State University is proud to present the 10th annual V-Week. V-Week began with the production “The Vagina Monologues” and became a movement centered around replacing Valentine’s Day with V-Day and replacing the traditional ideas of romantic love with awareness about sexual violence and abuse of women and girls.

“Until the Violence Stops,” the official V-Day film documenting how the Vagina Monologues grew into an international movement, will be shown from 6-8 p.m. Feb. 12 in Violette Hall 1000. At this event, the Women’s Resource Center will be collecting donations for Victim Support Services and the Adair County chapter of PFlag.

A presentation and forum of ideas titled “Meninists: Equality is for Everyone” will take place from 7-9 p.m. Feb. 13 in the Student Union Building Room 322. This forum will raise questions about what the world would be like without sexual violence, how this would affect men and what it means to be a man and a feminist as well as discuss how the Monologues affect everyone, of every class, sex and gender.

The original V-Day, Feb. 14, will include an art workshop from 3:30-6:30 p.m. in the Student Union Building Room 322.

Finally, “A Memory, a Monologue, a Rant and a Prayer” will be presented from 7-8:30 p.m. Feb. 15 in Baldwin Hall Little Theatre. This groundbreaking collection of monologues by world-renowned authors and playwrights promotes awareness about how women and men are affected by sexual violence.
