As part of Sexual Violence Awareness Week (March 28–April 1), Eve Ensler will speak about violence against women both in the United States and around the world at 6:30 p.m. on March 28, in Alumni Hall at the HUB. This event is free and open to the public.
Following her public talk, twenty Paterno Fellows (admitted or aspiring) will have the opportunity to meet with her. Interested students must RSVP to Barb Edwards <firstname.lastname@example.org> to register.
Ensler, Tony Award winning playwright, performer, and activist, is the author of The Vagina Monologues, which has been translated into more than 48 languages and performed in more than 140 countries. Ensler’s experience performing The Vagina Monologues inspired her to create V-Day, a global activist movement to stop violence against women and girls. To date, the V-Day movement has raised more than $100 million; educated millions about the issue of violence against women and the efforts to end it; crafted international educational, media, and PSA campaigns; reopened shelters; and funded more than 13,000 community-based anti-violence programs and safe houses in Democratic Republic of Congo, Haiti, Kenya, Egypt, and Iraq.
