Students from the IU School of Medicine Chapter of the Student National Medical Association, IU Robert H. McKinney School of Law and IUPUI will stage a performance of the Vagina Monologues at 8 p.m. Friday, Feb. 8, and Saturday, Feb. 9, in the Wynne Courtroom at the McKinney School of Law.
All proceeds from the performance will benefit Legacy House, a Indianapolis-based organization serves the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of adults and children who have been affected by violence.
The performance is one of many taking place across the world during V-Day, a global activist movement to stop violence against women and girls that raises funds and awareness for local anti-violence organizations and through benefit productions of playwright and founder Eve Ensler's award-winning play “The Vagina Monologues” and other artistic works. V-Day generates broader attention for the fight to stop violence against women and girls, including rape, battery, incest, female genital mutilation and sex slavery.
The Student National Medical Association is the nation's oldest and largest independent, student-run organization focused on the needs and concerns of medical students of color. Membership includes more than 8,000 medical students, pre-medical students, residents and physicians. Established in 1964, SNMA is dedicated to both ensuring culturally sensitive medical education and services, as well as increasing the number of African-American, Latino and other students of color entering and completing medical school.
Tickets are $10 and are available for purchase at the door or online at http://iupui-vday.eventbrite.com.
