Our friends at The Cool Factor invited us to the College of the Desert Dramatic Arts Company‘s Vagina Monologues this week. Since the event sounded interesting to us, we thought it be of interest to you as well…
It’s always a good move to support your local Performing Arts, even more-so when it’s a stage full of women.
So take a peek, it’s okay…
One Billion Rising
The College of the Desert Dramatic Arts Company has joined with activists around the world as part of ONE BILLION RISING, the largest call to action in the history of V-Day, the global activist movement to end violence against women and girls. ONE BILLION RISING brings awareness to the staggering statistic that 1 in 3 women on the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime. With the world population at 7 billion, this adds up to more than ONE BILLION WOMEN AND GIRLS. During this 2013 season (V-Day’s 15th anniversary) COD joins activists, writers, thinkers, celebrities, and other college campuses across the world in a united stand of defiance against the injustices of violence against women.
A wonderfully talented cast of women will take the Pollock Theatre stage the weekend of February 22nd, 2013, with a production of The Vagina Monologues by Eve Ensler. All of the proceeds from the weekend-long event will directly benefit Shelter From the Storm.
