Three nights of humor and pathos brought to MIT by students, alumnae, and staff, The Vagina Monologues debuted at the Institute in 2002, making this our 16th annual production. Based on V-Day founder Eve Ensler's Obie award winning play, The Vagina Monologues explores and celebrates women's sexuality
-- its delights, pains, actualities, and vulnerabilities. Through intriguing testimonies from real women all around the world, the show has developed into a wonderful phenomenon that peers into women's fantasies and fears.
The Vagina Monologues brings together a diverse group of people from the MIT community, with vastly different backgrounds and interests, united under the common goal to stop violence against women. All proceeds from the MIT production go to local anti-violence organizations helping them to continue and expand their core work. In the past, we have raised up to $11,000 for local beneficiaries. This year, proceeds are benefitting the Cambridge Women's Center Incest Resources project, which was the first organization in the country for survivors of incest and childhood sexual abuse.
Tickets are available online, at the door, and at publicity booth. To find out more about the show, publicity booth times, raffle prizes, and more, visit our website at vagina.mit.edu.
