Woman Asks 100 College Guys… Why Are Vaginas Important To You?

DocumentaryEducationWomen's Rights 2 Comments

College senior and Woman You Should Know Alia Roth asked 100 male students on her Connecticut College campus, “Why are vaginas important to you?” Before anyone gets their panties in a ruffle, her reason for doing so is important and her mission is noble. The guys’ responses are a mix of surprising, hilarious, enlightened, sweet, awkward and downright creepy.

Be sure to hang in for the entire 8 minutes. Trust us… you don’t want to miss a single answer or the end reel bloopers.

Alia embarked on this bold video project to raise awareness for The Connecticut College Vagina Monologues, Domestic Violence Awareness Month (October), and Sexual Assault Awareness Month (April). Her goal was to ignite a dialogue amongst young people about the language of consent and role they can play in ending sexual assault and gender based violence.

She’ll be graduating this May and is currently the producer of the 2014 Connecticut College Vagina Monologues. Connecticut College has participated in V-Day, the global activist movement to end violence against women and girls for 11 years, hosting productions of “The Vagina Monologues” on campus to raise awareness and funds. They have donated $65,922 to local anti violence organizations.

    This was hilarious and serious at the same time. I did find it so interesting that so many of the men referenced their mothers. Every male has a special bond with his mother and respects her. If they can equate vaginas with their mothers then perhaps there is hope that they can respect all females.

    Either this is the best of a random sample, or women should just start applying to Connecticut College. Even the “creepy” answers gave me more hope than I had before. Thanks again Eve Ensler for the gift that keeps on giving and yay for CC and Alia Roth for making it happen on their campus.
