Turning pain into power

A series of events will take place on campus leading up to City College’s presentation of the nationally known production V-day, which aims to raise domestic violence awareness.

The production will be held Feb. 18 and 19 in the Saville Theatre and 90 percent of the proceeds will be donated to Diana Gonzalez’s daughter Crystal’s scholarship fund.

“One of the mottos is turning pain into power,” V-day director and City College theater professor Katherine Rodda said.

“I love vaginas,” Marya Edgar, V-day house manager, said. “I love mine and I’m excited to educate other people about it.”

The “1000 Vagina March,” a promotional walk through campus for V-day, will take place Feb. 15. On Feb. 16 there will be the “RAD Vaginas” event, RAD which stands for Rape Aggression Defense, is a seminar that teaches women self-defense skills.

A mass poster-making activity, to share stories and draw inspirational pieces that will be featured on the walls during V-day, will be held in Gorton Quad and Curran Plaza on Feb. 17 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Pre-sale tickets for V-Day are available on www.brownpaperticket.com. Tickets will also be sold the night of the event at the Saville Theatre.
