As part of the V-Day global movement to stop violence against women and girls, the women of Wake Forest University and Salem College will present a benefit production of Eve Ensler's award-winning play "The Vagina Monologues." All proceeds will be donated to local battered women shelters.

The production will be performed at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 20-22 at the Ring Theatre in Scales Fine Arts Center on the campus of Wake Forest and at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 27-March 1 in Bryant Hall at Salem College.
