Cherie's Angry Vagina
Recently, I had an opportunity to perform in Oakland University's Women’s Issues Forum production of “The Vagina Monologues.”
(Here's me in my "Vagina Warriors 2010" t-shirt.)
Every year, during the months of February and March, productions are staged at college campuses across the country as part of V-Day – a movement to prevent and end violence against women.
Proceeds raised from ticket sales go to women’s charities aimed at violence prevention.
OU's production benefits two such organizations: Alternatives for Girls and Turning Point.
It's never too late to support the cause. Make your donation here:
Alternatives for Girls
My monologue was titled, "My Angry Vagina." It is a comical discuss of the indignities the female body is made to endure in our modern world: tampons, thong underwear, and those annual gynecological exams.
Fun was had by all who checked their preconceptions and misconceptions at the door.
