Anti-Vagina Monologues EventMore Activism Ideas
General conservative groups and traditional values groups would be excellent to hold an Anti-Vagina Monologues event.
The Vagina Monologues, an episodic play by Eve Ensler, vehemently promotes an anti-male worldview, portrays women as perpetual victims, and is unapologetically anti-heterosexual. If this offensive play is being held at your campus, take action! Often this play is funded by your tuition dollars or compulsory Student Activity fees, just another example of the leftist bias on college campuses today.
Stay cordial and keep your language clean at your event. Just because the left lowers itself to using crude and disgusting images doesn’t mean you have to. If the left tries to pull a stunt with sexual symbols, stay calm. Record the absurdity, publicize it and thus embarrass them.

The Vagina Monologues is typically held during the week of Valentine’s Day (February 14th).
HOW TO TAKE ACTION
1. Determine when the event is being held. Schedule your protest around these dates.
2. Collect the materials needed for the event. You will need to acquire poster board and other materials for signs, a table, and informational flyers.
3. Reserve space on campus for the event. Contact the Student Activities Office and attempt to reserve the most high-traffic area available.
4. Invite allied organizations. Ask other conservative organizations on campus or in the outside community to contribute to the purchase of supplies or help run the games at your table. This is a great way to strengthen cooperation between different groups in the conservative movement, and to increase attendance and volunteers in the form of members of the other groups.
5. Advertise! Success depends on how well you publicize your event, so you should advertise early and often. This doesn’t necessarily mean paid advertising; “earned media” may work even better for you.

6. Prepare for opposition. Keep a video camera available at all times, and record any aggression – both verbal and physical. If some behaves belligerently, ask why he or she objects to your exercise of your right to free speech.
7. Create a schedule. Have members of your group volunteer as much time as possible to man your informational table and interact with passersby.
8. Protest! Man your table during the time you have allotted for the event. Make sure group members maintain enthusiasm and engage passersby.
9. Advertise! (again) The fact that your event is over does not mean that your public relations work is done. Earned media can be extremely useful to you. Click here to learn several important follow-up publicity measures to do after the event is finished.
