    <ong>Carleton students to perform “The Vagina Monologues”

    On Friday, Feb. 13 at 7:30 p.m., Carleton students will present their annual performance of Eve Ensler’s award-winning play “The Vagina Monologues.” The production, part of the nationwide V-Day movement to stop violence against women, will take place at the Skinner Memorial Chapel on the Carleton campus. Tickets can be purchased at the door and in advance in the Sayles-Hill campus center; admission is a sliding scale fee of $5-20. All proceeds benefit the HOPE Center in Faribault, Minn., and the V-Day 2009 Spotlight Campaign on the Congo. The public is invited to attend this always-popular performance. Ten percent of the funds raised through Carleton’s 2009 V-Day production will go to the Spotlight Campaign on the Congo, combating the widespread physical and sexual violence against women in the Democratic Republic of Congo. More information about violence against Congolese women and girls is available at

    The remaining proceeds will be donated to the HOPE Center. The HOPE Center delivers advocacy and crisis intervention services to victims of domestic abuse, child abuse and sexual assault through healing outreach, prevention and education. HOPE Center was formed in 1994 by merging the Rice County Sexual Assault Program, Battered Women’s Program and the Northfield Helpline. More information is available about HOPE Center at
