Spring 2015

One Billion Rising at Gettysburg College

Friday, February 13, 2015 from 4:00 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. in the College Union Ballroom.

ONE BILLION RISING FOR JUSTICE is a global call to women survivors of violence and those who love them to gather safely in community outside places where they are entitled to justice – courthouses, police stations, government offices, school administration buildings, work places, sites of environmental injustice, military courts, embassies, places of worship, homes, or simply public gathering places where women deserve to feel safe but too often do not. It is a call to survivors to break the silence and release their stories – politically, spiritually, outrageously – through art, dance, marches, ritual, song, spoken word, testimonies and whatever way feels right.

The Vagina Monologues

Join Gettysburg College and the Women's Center in our annual student performance of the Vagina Monologues on Thursday, February 19 & Friday, February 20, 2015, at 7:00 p.m. in the CUB Ballroom! Tickets cost $8.00 at the door, and all proceeds benefit Survivors, Inc. of Gettysburg. T-shirts will be for sale for $8.00.

What are the Vagina Monologues?

"A poignant and hilarious tour of the last frontier, the ultimate forbidden zone, The Vagina Monologues is a celebration of female sexuality in all its complexity and mystery. In this stunning phenomenon that has swept the nation, Eve Ensler gives us real women's stories of intimacy, vulnerability, and sexual self-discovery.

"Celebrated as the bible for a new generation of women, The Vagina Monologues has been performed in cities all across America and at hundreds of college campuses. It has inspired a dynamic grassroots movement--V-Day--to stop violence against women. Witty and irreverent, compassionate and wise, Eve Ensler's Obie Award-winning masterpiece gives voice to women's deepest fantasies and fears, guaranteeing that no one who reads it will ever look at a woman's body, or think of sex, in quite the same way again.

"Based on interviews with over 200 women about their memories and experiences of sexuality, The Vagina Monologues gives voice to women's deepest fantasies and fears, guaranteeing that no one who reads it will ever look at a woman's body, or think of sex, in quite the same way again. It is witty and irreverent, compassionate and wise. 'At first women were reluctant to talk,' Ensler writes. 'They were a little shy. But once they got going, you couldn't stop them.'" (Random House 2014)
