“The little coochie snorcher that could.” Reading that, what comes to your mind? Maybe cunilingus? Or maybe just the story of that little train engine who somehow willed itself over a high mountain by saying “I think I can.”

For those who’ve seen the Vagina Monologues, it’ll recall memories of a woman telling about a traumatic sexual experience from her teenage years–an experience that she later would think of as positive.
What comes to mind when you hear “Reclaiming cunt?”
It’s a monologue where the actress leads the audience in an alliterative chant about that word, in an effort to change its derogatory connotation.
These two monologues will be part of PSU’s staging of the Vagina Monologues, a feminist play written by Eve Ensler that relates almost entirely to the vagina by discussing issues such as rape, sex, gender-based discrimination and even douching.
The Women’s Resource Center (WRC) is presenting the play two nights in a row: Thursday the 14th-Valentine’s Day–and Friday the 15th in the Smith Memorial Student Union ballroom at 7 p.m. both days.
The play is acted and directed by student volunteers of the Women’s Resource Center. Schools and communities around the world put on the Vagina Monologues during Valentine’s Day as a part of “V-Day,” an annual movement aimed at raising awareness about, and preventing, violence and assault against women.
Ensler grants schools such as PSU temporary rights to produce the play without charging them as an effort to increase awareness, said Bridge Gorrow, the interim director of the WRC. The WRC is charging for the event–$11 for non-students, and $8 for students and senior citizens–to raise funds for Tri-County Sexual Assault Task Force, one of the primary sex assault prevention organizations in the Portland area.
