A show rich in bold subject matter surrounding feminism and empowerment for women, The Vagina Monologues will premiere at Miami University tonight at McGuffey Hall.           

Each year, the student organization Feminists Working on Real Democracy hosts the show as their premier spring event. The play, originally scripted by Eve Ensler in 1996, explores a wide range of topics from pubic hair to self-love to sexual assault.

Members of Feminists Working on Real Democracy are especially excited for the production as the show will highlight and support many of the things the organization is passionate about.

"Every year a portion of the profits we get from ticket sales go to V-Day, an international organization seeking to end violence against women," Carleigh LaFrance, co-president of Feminists Working on Real Democracy said. "The remaining profits will be donated to Women Helping Women."

Women Helping Women is a Cincinnati-based organization that provides support and legal counseling to survivors of sexual assault. 

"I think it's awesome that such an interesting show not only being held at Miami, but being held for such a good cause," Jackie Mooney, a sophomore attending the show, said.

Tickets are on sale now at the box office and are $10 the day of the show. The Vagina Monologues will run tonight through Saturday beginning each night at 7:30 p.m.
