First reporting: The University of South Carolina Beaufort are preparing to once again host the "Vagina Monologues" series March 25 and 26 (Friday-Saturday.)

The all-woman, 18-person cast travels nationwide all year round to help raise awareness about sexual violence against woman through their "V-day" events. Ten of the woman have themselves been victims of a sexual assault, and are hoping that the spread of their message can help "spred the movement."

The event spans over two days and features three showings (7 p.m. on March 25. 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. on March 26) of Eve Ensler's play "The Vagina Monologues."

Tickets, which run at $6 for students, $10 for seniors, and $12 for general admission, can be purchased either at the Hargray Lobby Desk on the bluffton campus, or at the Center for the Arts box office in Beaufort. Proceeds will be donated to "Hope Haven of the Lowcountry and Citizens Opposed to Domestic Abuse."
