Staged every February at Lasell and across the world, “The Vagina Monologues” was originally written and premiered in 1996 in New York City. The playwright of the show, Eve Ensler, also created the global campaign known as V-Day, to raise awareness of violence against women. Interviewing more than 200 women, Ensler has wrote monologues on femininity, sex, love, birth, and various names for vagina.
