This last Friday March 14th, a group of Belles gathered at ARU’s Mumford Theatre to take audience at a performance of Eve Ensler’s no-holds-barred, Vagina Monologues.
Amongst the Belles a few had seen the production before (albeit in another language), but on the whole we all took our seats with open minds and open hearts.
The play itself was performed by four actresses who, to keep with Ensler’s original intentions, read from a book – rather than having to memorize lines. The realism and information was communicated in the best ways possible through these means as each story is just that – completely human and personal, thereby forfeiting necessity to be memorized.
It goes without saying that the play hit home and inspired many thoughts of fellow women who have seen struggles beyond our understanding – laced with stories that made us laugh equally and more than ever, relate to.

To top the evening off, proceeds of the ticket sales were going to the Cambridge Rape Crisis Centre – a place that we hold dear to our hearts as Belles for all of the fantastic work that they do to help women in need.
