FAN Presents: ‘The Feminist Monologues’ (3/28 & 3/29)

Monday, March 23rd, 2015

Poster design by Aria Goodman.

This Saturday (3/28) and Sunday (3/29) in Wilson Chapel, members of the Feminist Action Network (FAN) will be presenting The Feminist Monologues, an original production based on stories written by Skidmore students and directed by Clara Moser, Mariah Guevin, and Isabella León-Chambers.

For many years now, FAN has annually produced and sponsored a production of The Vagina Monologues— as have many colleges across the country. This year, however, they decided to do something entirely different by holding an open call for stories from Skidmore students about their experiences with “feminism, femininity, womanhood, and the female body.” From these submissions, several stories, monologues, and poems were selected, the show was cast, and you can see the final phase of the process this upcomming weekend:

This year we bring you monologues and poems, written and performed by Skidmore students themselves.
These are our own stories about feminism, sexuality, body image, womanhood, self-love, and survival.
These are our truths.
And we want you to hear them.

There will be three performances–two on Saturday at 2:00pm and 8pm, and one on Sunday at 2:00pm–in Wilson Chapel. There is a suggested $5 donation at the door, the proceeds of which will go to Wellspring (formerly known as Saratoga DVRC) and GEMS: Girls Educational & Mentoring Services. Reservations can be made in the Atrium, where members of FAN will be ticket tabling Wednesday from 11-7pm, Thursday from 2-7pm, and Friday from 2-5pm.
