V-Day Event Will Celebrate Women, Speak Out Against Violence

The University of Central Florida will join the movement to end violence against women by hosting an award-winning play about female empowerment and individuality.

The Vagina Monologues, presented by UCF Victim Services, will be performed and put on by students Saturday, March 28.

Doors to the Pegasus Ballroom inside the Student Union will open at 6 p.m. for pre-show activities, and the show will start at 7 p.m. Free parking will be available in Garage F.

The Vagina Monologues is open to students, faculty, staff and members of the community, though it is intended for mature audiences. Admission is free, but donations for The Zebra Coalition, which supports LGBTQ+ youth, will be accepted.

The Vagina Monologues, by playwright Eve Ensler, has been performed around the country.

The play has spawned V-Day, a global movement designed to celebrate and honor women and speak out against violence. Concurrent V-Day events worldwide will increase awareness and raise money and attention for the fight to stop violence against women and girls.
