V-Day Lubbock Coalition (Facebook link) announces its 5th annual production of “The Vagina Monologues” for 2012!
The Vagina Monologues is used as the centerpiece of V Day events for many reasons. It is based on real women’s stories so it allows women who hear the stories to know that they are not alone in their own experience. It helps people who have experienced violence heal. It inspires people – women AND men - to get involved in V Day’s efforts to stop violence against women and girls. It removes the shame often associated with the word “vagina” and the vagina itself and instead celebrates the word, celebrates women.
This year we are proudly raising funds for the Hope and Healing Fund which offers survivors of sexual assault confidential counseling sessions with a licensed professional counselor at a reduced rate or no cost to the client. Statistics show that a vast majority of survivors who experience sexual violence never report the crime. We also know that most people are under the false impression that if they choose not to report the crime that there are no healing resources available to them. These counseling sessions will provide one-on-one short-term counseling to help survivors of sexual violence work through thoughts and feelings surrounding their victimization, regardless of whether they chose to report the crime or not. Our hopes are that people can get the help that they deserve in order to heal from the trauma they have experienced.
Tickets: $10 each *For Mature Audiences Only*
