The Arapahoe Community College Student Affairs Office presents "The Vagina Monologues" on Wednesday, April 30, beginning at 6:00 p.m. in the Waring Theatre.

The Vagina MonologuesThis award-winning play is based on V-Day founder/playwright Eve Ensler's interviews with more than 200 women.  With humor and grace, the piece celebrates women's sexuality and strength.  Through this play and the liberation of this one word, countless women throughout the world have taken control of their bodies and their lives.  For more than 16 years, "The Vagina Monologues" has given voice to experiences and feelings not previously exposed in public.

A meet-the-actresses session, along with light refreshments in the Second Floor Student Lounge, will follow the performance.

Advance tickets may be purchased for $5 at the Student Affairs Office (Room M2820) or for $7 at the door (cash only), and 90% of the proceeds go to The Blue Bench (formerly known as RAAP) while 10% will benefit V-Day Spotlight.

About Denim Day
For the past 15 years, Peace Over Violence has run the Denim Day in L.A. and USA campaign on a Wednesday in April in honor of Sexual Violence Awareness Month.  The campaign was originally triggered by a ruling by the Italian Supreme Court where a rape conviction was overturned because the justices felt that since the victim was wearing tight jeans she must have helped her rapist remove her jeans, thereby implying consent.  The following day, the women in the Italian Parliament came to work wearing jeans in solidarity with the victim.  Peace Over Violence developed the Denim Day campaign in response to this case and the activism surrounding it.  Since then, wearing jeans on Denim Day has become a symbol of protest against erroneous and destructive attitudes about sexual assault.  In this rape prevention education campaign we ask community members, elected officials, businesses and students to make a social statement with their fashion by wearing jeans on this day as a visible means of protest against the misconceptions that surround sexual assault.  This year’s Denim Day (April 23, 2014) will focus on educating the community at large on the legal definition of consent.
