ASUW Women’s Action Commission presents The ________ Monologues as an annual event that showcases powerful personal narratives of individuals on the UW campus.
The ________ Monologues is an entirely student written and organized production featuring the UW students. Cast members will share personal stories of survival, identity, and resistance through a range of performances. As a challenge to the widely-known Vagina Monologues, The ________ Monologues (changed in 2012) asserts that people can tell their own stories in their own voices. It is always a powerful evening of truth telling.
Current productions hope to center the experiences of women, trans*, gender non-conforming and genderqueer folks. Students of all races, classes, sexual orientations, minds, bodies, ages. and religions are encouraged to perform. Monologues are written on any topic that we believe should be part of the conversation that the Monologues is intended to spark. Topics encouraged include gender identity, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, bodies, minds, activism, relationships, families. Individuals write truths that need be shared to discuss and deconstruct the identity of “woman”.
