The Royal College of Surgeons is holding a V-DAY to end Violence Against Women Day on March 7th and 9th. Together with this event, the female students of RCSI are performing the Vagina Monlogues, the award winning collection of monologues by Eve Ensler.

Quoting Wikipedia (cuz they do it best!)

“The Vagina Monologues is made up of a varying number of monologues read by a varying number of women …. Every monologue somehow relates to the vagina, be it through sex, love, rape, menstruation, mutilation, the variety of names for the vagina, ……as an aspect of the female body. A recurring theme throughout the piece is the vagina as a tool of female empowerment, and the ultimate embodiment of individuality. …….

Every year a new monologue is added to highlight a current issue affecting women around the world. The monologue is performed at thousands of local V-Day benefit productions of the play that take place annually in February and March raising funds for local groups, shelters, crisis centers working to end violence against women.”

The performance will be held in the O’flanagan theatre of the Royal College of Surgeons-6E if you pre-buy tickets, 8E if you buy them at the door. ALL PROCEEDS ARE GOING TO A BATTERED WOMEN’S SHELTER IN TALLAGHT. No one makes money, all proceeds are going to charity!

And Guess What? A certain someone is performing….

….But really, guys, this is a BIG DEAL. So BIG of a deal, that it is worth talking about on a metblog, the whole of Dublin City (the student population already is!!) should be buzzing about it!!
