V-Day Cast Assembly TODAY

V-Day is an international movement to eliminate violence against women and girls

V-Day is an international movement to eliminate violence against women and girls

V-Day is taking shape in reality!

Today, the cast of the Women’s Center’s production of Eve Ensler’s award-winning play The Vagina Monologues will assemble in the Women’s Center and begin work towards the production that will take place Friday, February 13, 2009 (the culmination of V-Week, February 10-14).

[That’s today, 10:00 a.m., in the Women’s Center, for folks checking the details; lunch is on the Women’s Center.]

The enthusiasm for a seminary production of the play keeps taking us by surprise — though it shouldn’t!

Of course, seminarians care about violence against women and girls! It’s wrong, and everything about the call to proclaim good news ought to impel us to be proclaiming the need to end this violence, and to be working in this world to bring it to an end in anticipation of its final end in the world to come.

Of course, that includes using the medium of the arts! Religion and the arts are twin enterprises of the human spirit, drawing on the senses to create spaces in our imaginations where liberating possibilities can take root and flourish. How can we hear that good news, if our ears are stopped up by the bad news of the “that’s just how things are/always have been/always will be” alleged realism of the present?

So we’re looking forward to seeing what a group of creative women seminarians will make of this artistic project to work towards a day without violence against women and girls!

V is for Venite -- days without violence!
