Every year the Women’s Studies Program organizes a daylong trip to Seneca Falls and Auburn, N.Y. in commemoration of the 1848 Seneca Falls Convention, the first women’s rights convention held in the United States.

A student-run production of The Vagina Monologues

The play, written by Eve Ensler, is a series of monologues in which women reflect on different aspects of female sexuality, including their own personal experiences with sex and their attitudes toward their genitalia. The production serves both as a fundraiser and an awareness event. Contact Christina Liu '13
, 2013 Co-Director, for more details.
