As part of V-Day the Women’s Resource Center is sponsoring a performance of the Vagina Monologues. The Center’s Barb Hopkinson says the play raises funds and awareness. She says it’s based on real women’s stories so it allows women who hear the stories to know they are not alone in their experience. She says it helps people who have experienced violence to heal and it inspires people, women and men, to get involved in V-Day efforts to stop violence against women and girls.
The Vagina Monologues will be performed by several local readers at 7 Thursday evening in the Hapnot Colligiate theatre. A silver collection will be taken to support the Women’s Safe Haven.
