Give Us a "V"

Pussycat to pooki, Quad C and UNT have 'em all

It's time for that annual exam. Put on the backless, scratchy paper examination gown. Giddy up those ankles onto the icy cold stirrups. Now scoot closer. No, closer. Seriously, closer. Sounds like a lot of fun, huh? Sure, we can complain--and we will--but we've got it better than women in other parts of the world where swimming, flirting and even wearing pants are forbidden. And we'll be reminded of that during our annual conscience exam, the V-Day performances of The Vagina Monologues.

Eve Ensler has turned her The Vagina Monologues, from a funny, sad, chilling and captivating play about first periods, tampons, coming out, rape, virginity, childbirth and freedom into a fund-raiser that has earned more than $20 million in six years for women's charities around the world. Participating in this year's College Campaign on Valentine's Day weekend are Quad C Theatre and the University of North Texas. So, gather the loose change, grab some Kleenex and get ready to laugh at the speculum rant. That annual exam will never be the same again.
