The Vagina Monologues is an annual benefit performance, which aims to raise awareness and funds for anti-violence against women groups within local communities. The Vagina Monologues is part of a global movement to stop violence against women and girls called V-Day. Half of the proceeds of the UC Irvine Vagina Monologues production supports the entire budget of the Campus Assault Resource Center. The other half of the show's proceeds go to Planned Parenthood, stage costs, and this year's national V-Day campaign against Rape in the Congo. The 'V' in V-Day stands for Victory, Valentine and Vagina. Show host Daniel C. Tsang interviews: Lead Director: Hailee Pollard. She's a fifth year undergrad in the theater department.
