“You can’t love vaginas, if you don’t like hair!” shouted Sophomore Emily Sanders, performing the piece “Hair“ at the Vagina Monologues last night.
The Alumni Hall was packed for the first night of Even Ensler’s the Vagina Monologues, performed by 37 McDaniel students and even one professor. The Monologues put aside controversy and embraced the power of having a vagina to raise money for Rape Crisis Intervention Services of Carroll County, Family and Children’s Services of Central Maryland, and women and girls affected by the earthquake in Haiti.
The Vagina Monologues were created in 1996 by Eve Ensler with the objective of empowering women and individuality as a whole. Since its first performance, it has raised over $75 million for women’s anti-violence groups.
“I think tonight went fantastic!” said senior Nathan Wuertenberg who co-directed the performance with senior Lauren Hamby. “The cast was energetic and amazing. They inspire me.”
The first performance was received with a standing ovation by the audience.
Senior Stefon Kelly loved it, saying, “It was a lot of vaginas and a lot of fun!”
Tickets are $7 for students and $10 for everyone else. Come and see McDaniel’s very own perform for a good cause this Saturday night!
