Guam - Back by popular demand, the University of Guam revives "The Vagina Monologues".

Written by Eve Ensler, the play was inspired by hundreds of interviews with women of all ages, backgrounds, and beliefs and their attitudes towards their vaginas.

UOG assistant professor of theater Michelle Blas said, "What she found out is that women were never asked about their vaginas. And she found that some of the stories were funny. Some were very serious and kind of tragic. And she thought you know what? A lot of women have been silenced about the many things involving vaginas so she wrote this play as a way women around the world could use as a fundraiser for local non-profits who help women and children who were victims of sexual violence."

The show runs from February 26 to 28 at the UOG Fine Arts Theater. Show starts at 7pm with doors opening at 6. Tickets can be purchased at the door or at Guma Tasa, Java Hut, Island Girl Power Thrift Store, or VARO.

General admission is $20 and student/senior tickets for $10.

All proceeds will benefit VARO, Erika's House, Island Girl Power, and Oasis Empowerment Center.
