On March 8, International Women's Day, Twin Oaks celebrated by producing its own home-grown version of The Vagina Monologues. Following several weeks of rehearsals, 15 Twin Oakers read monologues, including 2 that we had written ourselves! So many members and friends came to see the performance that we cracked some floor trusses in the dining hall where it was being performed. During the week preceding the performance, each night had a special vagina-themed activity—self-exam night, art night, video night, writing night, and a women's ritual and dance. Women's culture is thriving at Twin Oaks! To read the monologues yourself, ask at a library or bookstore for The Vagina Monologues, by Eve Ensler.[Posted 08-Mar-2003]
