Upcoming: Vagina Monologues in American Sign Language, UT, April 24 and 25

American Sign Language Performance of The Vagina Monologues Marks V-Day 2009

Two American Sign Language (ASL) performances of The Vagina Monologues are part of The University of Texas at Austin's participation in this year's V-Day 2009.

V-Day is a global movement to stop violence against women and girls that was founded by playwright Eve Ensler. It promotes creative events to raise money and generate attention for the fight to end violence, including rape, battery, incest, female genital mutilation and sexual slavery.

The performances will take place on April 24 and 25 at 7 p.m. in the Jester Auditorium (Jester A121A) on The University of Texas at Austin campus. Tickets cost $10 and will be available at the door. Proceeds from this year's ASL performances will benefit SafePlace-Deaf Services and the Mali Signs Project.
