My Mom is Gonna Rock the Vagina Monologues

You heard that right, my Mom is going to rock the Vagina Monologues next week in Sacramento.

I don’t write a lot about my mom here. My father, being the more notorious parent, seems to take up more space. However, I should work on that because my mom is a smart and resourceful women and I feel incredibly grateful that she’s a part of my life.

One thing that tickles me about the Vagina Monologues event in Sacramento is that it’s a fund-raiser for a handful or organizations, including WEAVE. WEAVE stands for Women Escaping a Violent Environment and it’s the organization that helped my mom leave my abusive father over a decade ago. What a cool way for her to give a little something back to a group that helped her and to bookend two parts of her life (beginning life away from my dad, and beginning retirement).

Thank you WEAVE for helping my mom and us all those years ago, and thank you mom for being you!

    Way to go mom!

    My mom also did the Vagina Monologues, a few years after I did, in an all African American performance (in Portland, even) She did the Cunt monologue which was both awesome and incredibly awkward at the same time. :)

    Your mom is awesome! I’m so glad that I’ve been able to get to know her through the V-Day experience.

    I also want to share that I recently hosted an Open Mic this last Wednesday, Midtown Out Loud (MOL). Your mom signed up to be our first performer. I am so happy your mom braved the stage of MOL and I am honored to share the stage with her in the Vagina Monologues.
