The University of Akron is again hosting Eve Ensler’s The Vagina Monologues at E.J. Thomas Hall on Jan. 25 at 8 p.m. Tickets for this event are on sale now on Ticketmaster.

According to their website, V-Day is a global activist movement aimed at ending violence against all individuals who identify as women worldwide. V-Day activists want to raise money to help stop the violence against women including rape, battery, incest, female genital mutilation (FGM) and sex trafficking.

V-Day campaigns have local volunteers, usually college students, organize productions of either The Vagina Monologues or A Memory, A Monologue, A Rant and A Prayer. All proceeds of the performances go to local centers that work on ending violence against women.

UA’s 
events webpage explains the proceeds for the production of The Vagina Monologues at UA will go to the Rape Crisis Center. The Rape Crisis Center has a satellite office located in Room 246 of the Student Recreation & Wellness Center.

The 
Rape Crisis Center employs advocates to support survivors 24 hours a day, every day with their confidential hotline, 877-906-7273. This hotline offers services such as counseling, hospital advocacy, education and outreach.

The Rape Crisis Center’s main office is located at 974 E. Market St. in Akron.
