Thanks to the efforts of somefaculty members, this year's performance of TheVagina Monologueswas brought into dialogue with Catholic tradition through panels that followedeach performance. Panelists presented the Catholic teaching on human sexuality,and students and faculty engaged one another and these issues in serious andinformed discussion. These panels taught me and perhaps taught others that thecreative contextualization of a play like TheVagina Monologuescan bring certain perspectives on important issues into a constructive andfruitful dialogue with the Catholic tradition. This is a good model for thefuture. Accordingly, I see no reason to prohibit performances of TheVaginaMonologues on campus, and do not intend to do so.
