There will be three performances, one on Feb. 15 and two on Feb. 16.

The Texas Tech University Feminist Majority Leadership Alliance (FMLA) will host the 12th annual production of "The Vagina Monologues," a production where people from all backgrounds tell stories that motivate others to end shaming and violence toward women.

Performances will begin at 5:30 p.m. Feb. 15 and will continue at 2:30 and 6 p.m. Feb. 16. All performances will be in the Escondido Theater in the Student Union Building (SUB).

"The Vagina Monologues" was written by activist and playwright Eve Ensler. The production, which debuted in 1994 to great acclaim, includes true stories based on interviews Ensler conducted with a variety of women.

Ensler established V-Day in 1998 to allow people to put on their own production and for others to tell their own stories. The day's ultimate goal is to end violence against women and girls everywhere.

Tickets are $5 and all proceeds will go to Women Protective Services Lubbock. A resource fair will be hosted before the show on Feb. 16 starting at 5 p.m.
