The _______ Monologues

The _______ Monologues

Students, staff, and faculty filled the HUB Lyceum on February 8th and 9th to hear experiences shared by a group of brave women, trans*, gender non-conforming, and genderqueer individuals. The stories were about personal moments of resistance, identity, and survival experienced by the performers. A range of topics were explored, such as gender identity, religion, bodies, minds, activism, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and many more. The goal of the ASUW Womxn’s Action Commission’s flagship event was to “deconstruct” the identity of a woman, and to leave attendees with a feeling of pride in the power of individuals.

For Brittany Wu, the president of the Womxn’s Action Commission, this event is more than just a performance. To her, participation in The _______ Monologues was more important than the event itself, as the goal was for the performers to feel empowered during their moments of vulnerability. “As the director, knowing that a student can make this big of a difference feels incredible, and I’m so glad that around 350 people got to have insight on 9 of thousands of breathtaking stories held by UW students,” shared Brittney. From the response and feedback heard regarding this event, the hours upon hours of planning and organizing by the Womxn’s Action Commission shined through in the final product.
