The Vagina Monologues is made up of a varying number of monologues read by a varying number of women . Every monologue somehow relates to the vagina, be it through sex, love, rape, menstruation, mutilation, masturbation, birth, orgasm, the variety of names for the vagina, or simply as a physical aspect of the body. A recurring theme throughout the piece is the vagina as a tool of female empowerment, and the ultimate embodiment of individuality.

Ally Training I provides a space to gain knowledge and skills about gender & sexual diversity, and to ask questions and engage in conversations we don’t often have the chance to explore. Participants learn about GLBTA communities, think critically about gender and sexuality, discuss language and privilege, reframe myths and stereotypes, and explore how we can b…e allies to each other across identities and experiences.
Attendees leave the training with newfound awareness and concrete steps they can take to help make our campus and larger communities more welcoming and affirming for everyone.
