Vanderbilt University School of Medicine Production of "The Vagina Monologues," Friday, Feb. 19

Vanderbilt University School of Medicine's production of "The Vagina Monologues" will take place on Friday, Feb. 19, at 6 p.m. in Langford Auditorium, and will feature faculty, staff and students.

Admission is by a $5 suggested donation or free with the purchase of a $10 event T-shirt. Proceeds will benefit the Sexual Assault Center of Nashville.

"The Vagina Monologues" is produced as a part of V-Day, a global movement to end violence against women and girls that raises funds and awareness through benefit productions of Eve Ensler's award-winning play.

To date, this movement has raised more than $70 million and educated millions about the issue of violence against women and the efforts to end it. Each year, V-Day focuses on a specific group of women in the world who are resisting violence with courage and vision. This year's spotlight campaign will highlight the women of the Democratic Republic of Congo.
