7:00pm •Vagina Monologues
@ Cooperage - The Vagina Monologues cast consists of a group of Sonoma State University women and men performing monologues that all relate to the vagina somehow. While some of the monologues are humorous, others will bring you to tears with their raw words and deep penetrating messages. Topics of these monologues include sex, love, rape, mutilation, masturbation, birth, orgasm and anatomy. This play uses the vagina as a theme that represents female empowerment in society. Tickets will be available in the Student Union and cost $5 for students, $8 faculty and staff and $10 general admission. All proceeds will benefit anti violence non profits. The Vagina Monologues by Eve Ensler have been “hailed by The New York Times as "funny" and "poignant" and by the Daily News as "intelligent" and "courageous," The Vagina Monologues, which was first performed off-Broadway by Ms. Ensler, dives into the mystery, humor, pain, power, wisdom, outrage and excitement buried in women’s experiences.” ( )
7:15pm •“One Day After Peace”: An Israeli Woman’s Odyssey”
@ Congregation Shomrei Torah 2600 Bennett Valley Road, Santa Rosa - Could you forgive someone who killed your child? This award winning documentary tells the story of Robi Damelin an Israeli woman whose son is killed by a Palestinian sniper. A bereaved mother turned peace activist, Robi tries to meet her son’s killer in an Israeli prison. His refusal sends her on a trip back to her native South Africa 15 years after apartheid to speak with people who were part of the Truth and Reconciliation Act. Robi meets with perpetrators from both sides of the conflict, and tries to understand the motivations that brought them to confront their victims and publicly declare their crimes. The journey is her way of dealing with her personal grief and her search for solutions to the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. Molly Freeman and Judy Gussmann will facilitate a discussion after the film. Molly Freeman is a Bay Area leader and on the national board of J Street, which endorses a two-state solution to the Middle East. Judy Gussman is a facilitator with the Year of Civil Discourse, and on the East Bay Jewish Community Relations Council. For more information call 578-5519.
