Good News to Start, for a Change

Catholic women's colleges are standing up for student academic freedom and women's rights here in Minnesota. I am please to announce that my alma mater, the College of Saint Benedict (in conjunction with Saint John's University, lest we forget) is moving forward with it's February 17, 2006 presentation of The Vagina Monologues. And let me stress that this is academic because I know at least one person will be doing a fabulous ILP. The beneficiary will again be the Central Minnesota Sexual Assault Center, which is the only sexual assault center serving five counties in central Minnesota.

On another up note, according to the November 7 issue of The Wheel, the student newspaper at the College of Saint Catherine in Saint Paul, "On Nov. 3, after lengthy discussions, the College of Saint Catherine's (CSC) administration decided that CSC will host Eve Ensler's 'The Vagina Monologues.'" This will be part of a month long celebration. Their beneficiary has not yet been made public, but there are plenty of good groups in the Twin Cities who would certainly benefit.

Solidarity, sisters!
