York, PA – (December 30, 2019) YWCA York announces the fourth V-Day York community production of The Vagina Monologues February 13th, 7:00pm at The Capitol Theatre. The Vagina Monologues is celebrating 20 years of performances that share stories about resiliency and the social stigma surrounding abuse and violence against women and girls. It is particularly timely given the national attention on sexual assault in some very high profile cases.

To production’s co-directors are Jessica Bennett and Ashlyn Oberdorff. Tickets are on sale for $30 and can be purchased at www.ywcayork.org.

V-Day York is part of an international month of events to raise awareness and end violence against women and girls, as well as to raise funds for organizations working to end the violence, like YWCA York. It is estimated that one billion females will be physically, emotionally or sexually abused in their lifetime.
