Arts: ‘Vagina Monologues,’ student art and poetry workshop

‘Vagina Monologues’ returns March 28

The “Vagina Monologues” will return to Pima Community College West Campus on Thursday, March 28, at 7 p.m. in the Center for the Arts Proscenium Theatre.

“Vagina Monologues” features stories from real women who have suffered and been abused, but also includes funny tales. The cast consists of PCC students and employees.

Student government has hosted the event each year since its introduction to PCC in 2011. Due to its success, the “Vagina Monologues” has become a West Campus tradition.

Xail Hernandez, a PCC student and member of M.E.Ch.A, came up with the idea of hosting the first performance.

This year, the organizers are Cynthia Ramirez and Edith Granillo. Both students have participated in the event in previous years.

Admission is free and open to the public. Donations will be accepted, to benefit The ELLA Group, a local women’s organization.
