EVENT: Women's Caucus Presents The Vagina Monologues
WHO: More than 20 female students at the University of Rochester will perform The Vagina Monologues, the Eve Ensler play that, through a series of monologues, explores the many emotions and experiences that come with being female.
TIME, DATE, PLACE: 8 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 23, in Hubble Auditorium, located in Hutchinson Hall on the University's River Campus.

Rochester's production of the play will include a short film created for V-Day's 2013 campaign, One Billion Rising. Additionally, seniors performing in the play will stand up and deliver monologues that explain why they choose to participate in the production.
