Student Theater/Spoken Word Group:

Women Of color Revolutionary Dialogues (WORD) is a collective of women and queer people of color, immigrants, working-class and first-generation college students. Our families are from Fiji, Samoa, Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala, the Philippines, Taiwan, Vietnam, Korea, China, and Asian Pacific Islander, Latina and African American roots. We created WORD as a critique and alternative to the Vagina Monologues, seeking to give better representations of the lives and struggles of immigrant and working-class women and queer people of color in the United States and beyond. We write, direct and perform original pieces, based on our lives and experiences, in our show in the spring!
