Actors present series of graphic stories, empower women KATIE UPAH Staff Writer

From monologues examining pubic hair to stories about orgasms, “The Vagina Monologues” exposed several topics pertaining to womanhood Feb. 15 and 16 in Lang Hall Auditorium. “‘The Va g i n a Monologues’ are different stories about women and their experiences with their own vagina,” said Beth Dehne, student director. “Each one has its own unique story.” Eve Ensler, playwright, performer and activist, wrote “The Vagina Monologues” after conducting a series of interviews with more than 200 women about their vaginas. After writing the play,

Ensler founded V-Day, a global activist movement that aims to stop violence toward women. “Since that time, (Ensler) has continued to talk to women about their vaginas,” said Catherine MacGillivray, director of the women’s and gender studies program. “Every year there’s at least one new monologue that’s added to keep it fresh. It’s a living, breathing piece.” The monologues are commonly performed on college campuses in the U.S. to raise awareness about the need to end violence against women and girls, according to MacGillivray, “It’s an annual event that hundreds of college campuses participate in every year,” said MacGillivray. “The Vagina Monologues”

This is a time of year when people think about their gender roles in society and if they’re fulfilling them. Anne Langebartels Freshman

has raised over $100 million globally. The play has been published in 48 languages and produced in over 140 countries. “The message is strong, brave and confident,” Dehne said. “There’s nothing that Ensler could have done differently to make it better. It’s an extraordinary concept.” The cast featured 24 UNI students and staff. “Each member of the

cast came with their own unique views and interpretations of the show,” Dehne said. Colice Sanders, actress in the show and advisor for UNI support services, said the play has helped her feel comfortable with her body and understand the ways in which gender confines people. “I came to college a bit of a prude. The first time I read the script, I was absolutely shocked and a little uncomfortable,” Sanders said. “After going through it and understanding its authenticity and genuineness, I’ve come to embrace the script and get more comfortable with it.”  See MONOLOGUES, page 4

Opinion Obama misplaces focus of students LINH TA

OPINION EDITOR TAL@UNI.EDU

FEBRUARY 17, 2014

CHRISTOPHER DANIEL daniecab @uni.edu

Speaking in Waukesha, Wis., President Barack Obama joined the chorus calling for curtailing college liberal arts education due to its perceived weakness as a revenue generator or guarantor of employment. Instead, education must move to a vocational-technical focus to prepare students for the future of total work. Obama’s target was art history, but as we know, art history stands for any humanities degree perceived to be worthless. He could have easily said English or philosophy. He claims “a lot of young people no longer see the trades and skilled manufacture as a viable career.” He negatively compares the potential earnings of a graduate with a humanities degree to those of a skilled laborer. He continues: “You can make a really good living and have a great career without getting a four-year college education as long as you get the skills and the training you need.”

|

Obama has also stated that we need more students graduating with four-year degrees in the hard sciences and mathematics. The advice we receive from Monster.com all the way to our high school guidance counselor reinforces that the way to attain job security, good pay and a decent standard of living is by acquiring a bachelor’s degree, followed by continuing education — usually one or more graduate degrees. The assumption Obama seems to make is that those who seek college degrees in the humanities do so out of disdain for manual labor (note he does not mention degree seekers in business, law, science, engineering, economics, et cetera. Presumably these people have good reason to think themselves above manual laborers). Obama claims we need to see that there is dignity to be found in manual labor and manufacturing trades. And this is true; there is no indignity in work. There is no reason laborers should barely live at the poverty line. Obama misplaces the blame. The disdain for labor and the presumed loss of dignity laborers endure has more to do with the fact that labor-

ers average $25,710 annually. Retail workers average $19,000 to $24,990 annually and food service workers average $21,240. Deregulation of industry, decline of union and offshoring of labor have resulted in the decline of workers’ wages, leaving them to take what is given in wages, hours and benefits, especially for people with no college education.

What Obama and the current administration in both parties envision is a stratified society that exists for the sake of the economy. They outline a future stratified society, one in which the people with college education take the well-paying positions in administration as technocrats who design our society and culture. Below them are the laborers, those who have received vocational

training to run the machines and work in industry at lower pay. It is an irony that our president, who occupies a position that once seemed inconceivable for an African-American to hold in our society, turns around and tells the working classes and the uneducated that they should know and learn to be happy with their place.

College students have no more time for reading LAURA HEBBELN hebbelnl @uni.edu

Few things make me more excited than going online and seeing an article for Amazon’s new list, “100 books to read in a lifetime.” Who doesn’t love going through reading lists to see which books they have already read and which good books are still out there for them to read? As I skimmed through the list for the books I have already read, I was struck by the titles I picked out: “Alice in Wonderland,” “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” “Charlotte’s Web,” “The Giver” and, yes, it made the list, “Goodnight Moon.” All of these books had something in common: I read them (or had them read to me) what seems like an eternity ago. The most recent book on the list I had read, “Slaughterhouse-Five,” was a book I had not picked up on my own accord; it was required reading for one of my creative writing classes. Sadly, college has sucked up all of the time and energy that

Sadly, college has sucked up all of the time and energy that I used to have for reading. I used to have for reading. I am not the only one with this problem. In a 2011 article for U.S. News by Ryan Lytle, “Study: Reading Isn’t Dead for College Students,” the reporter interviewed a college student who shared similar problems to my own. “I go to class in the morning and afternoon, and at night I have meetings,” said Tristan Richards, junior at Gustavus Adolphus College in Minnesota. “I just feel like I’m always hopping from meeting to meeting, class to class and appointment to appointment. And by the time I actually get to sit down and do stuff, it’s nighttime and I have to do homework.” In a 2013 editorial by managing editor Melodi Erdogan of The Daily Beacon, a student newspaper at the University of Tennessee, Erdogan echoed Richards’s reading woes. “From the time classes begin

to the minute they end, I’m always busy doing homework and studying,” Erdogan said. “On weekends I catch up on sleep and socializing.” College libraries are trying to make leisure reading books more readily accessible, but that doesn’t solve the issue of today’s college student: there

simply isn’t enough time in the day for reading. When I do have a spare moment in my day, I feel guilty if I use my time for reading when I could be doing homework or practicing my violin. For college students like myself, who have gone from avid bookworms to people

who occasionally flip through a book at Barnes and Noble when home for Christmas break, we may just have to make the same resolution as Melodi Erdogan. “Reading is a hobby I am determined to not give up on, although I might just put it off until summer break,” Erdogan said.

‘Endless Love’ leaves Fisher pitches perfect game endless longing KATHERINE JAMTGAARD

BEN LLOYD

Film Critic

Sports Writer

Going into the theater, I thought I already had the plotline of “Endless Love” figured out. It would be a sappy story where the girl falls for the boy and everything’s all lovey-dovey. Well, I wasn’t right, but I also wasn’t wrong. Jade Butterfield (Gabriella Wilde), a girl who seems to have everything and has her life planned out, meets David Elliot (Alex Pettyfer), a boy who graduated with her but has significantly less. Their love changes Jade, which worries over-protective father Hugh Butterfield (Bruce Greenwood), who tries to keep the lovers apart. Sure, it sounds like a rather romantic movie, but while watching it, I didn’t get the feeling that I was watching a stereotypical love story. There is a dominant sense of tension that is brought out by the row between David and Hugh. It gives the movie an undercurrent of suspense that thoroughly let me down. The previews suggested a much darker past for David than the one actually used in the storyline. However, the tension still lingers. Aside from the somewhat expected tension between a father who has, in a way, relived his life through his over-accomplished daughter and the boyfriend who is giving her the teenage years she never had, there’s more going on in Jade’s family. Still crushed by the passing of eldest child Chris, the Butterfields never really seem to feel comfortable with each other. Keith Butterfield (Rhys Wakefield) doesn’t feel like he is living up to his father’s sky-high expectations; Anne Butterfield (Joely Richardson), Jade’s mother, doesn’t feel inspired. These situations are reflective of a lot of families and makes the characters relatable. This movie hits two core questions a lot of people have pondered at least once: “Isn’t high school where you’re supposed to meet friends you keep forever?” and “What if I’ve met the

Jamie Fisher has accomplished a lot as a UNI Panther. She was named to the Missouri Valley Conference AllConference team three times, she became UNI’s all-time leader in wins and she earned 2012’s MVC pitcher of the year and UNI’s all-time strikeout leader. On Friday morning she added a perfect game to her long list of accomplishments in Denton, Texas, during this weekend’s Lovelace Invitational. A perfect game is when a pitcher in softball or baseball retires every batter and pitches an entire length of a game without giving up any runs or hits. The Conrad native struck out six Southern University Jaguar hitters en route to her third win so far in the 2014 season. The game only went five innings due to the Panthers’ efficiency in the batter’s box, pounding out 15 runs and producing 13 RBIs. Four of those RBIs came off the bat of freshman Alyssa Buchanan in the first plate appearance of her UNI career, hitting a grand slam in the fourth inning. After Fisher’s performance, backed by a hitting brigade in the first game, the Panthers set their sights on the weekend’s next four matches. Friday afternoon, the Panthers came from behind in the sixth inning to steal a victory from Nicholls State

University. After picking up two runs in the top of the sixth inning to tie the game and cause extra innings, the Panthers gained the lead in the top of the eighth inning when sophomore Jordyn Brunssen scored from third base due to a throwing error by NSU. Sophomore pitcher Chelsea Ross picked up her second win of the season, earning nine strikeouts over seven innings. UNI lost the first match on Saturday 8-6 to the University of North Texas from a threerun walk-off home run by the Mean Green. The Panthers settled down in the afternoon in a rematch with NSU and won 8-0, setting up another matchup with UNT in Sunday’s Invitational Championship. The Panthers jumped out to a 6-4 lead in the sixth inning but could not keep the Mean Green bats calm. UNT scored three runs in the bottom half of the inning, forcing the pressure on the Panthers. The Panthers could not answer the call in the seventh, losing by a final score of 7-6. The loss was credited to UNI’s Fisher, making her overall record four wins and two losses on the season. In the championship, the Panthers saw good offensive production from junior Julia Hunter, who went three for four, knocking in two RBIs for UNI. The Panthers (6-3) will be back in action Friday when they travel to Tallahassee, Fla. for the Florida State Unconquered Invitational.

Anne Langebartels, freshman deciding major, thought it was appropriate for the play to be performed on Valentine’s Day weekend. “This is a time of year when people think about their gender roles in society and if they’re fulfilling them,” Langebartels said. “The play opened up a lot of different views on vaginas that I haven’t previously thought about or been exposed to.” Kaylan Brant, sophomore accounting major, also said the play changed her outlook on vaginas.

“‘The Vagina Monologues’ show that women need to look at their vaginas in a positive way,” Brant said. “The play makes me think of a vagina as a person, not just a thing.” Brant’s favorite monologue was ‘The Woman Who Loved to Make Vaginas Happy,’ in which a sex worker for women imitates various types of moaning. “Behind all the funny and dramatic stories, there was a deep message,” Brant said. “Everybody should get to know their vagina, respect it and take care of it.”

one and what if I miss out on them?” Addressing the high school question first, I was always told high school was the end-all beat-all of days. Sure, you may stay in contact with a handful of friends, but college would be where you make the friends that last forever. I know I have a few friends that I’m still fairly close with, but being one who wasn’t too social (like Jade in the movie) I really wanted to steer clear of the cattiness and graduate so I could meet new friends. David brings up the second question when he is no longer able to see Jade. He can’t seem to move on and he asks himself if he’s missing out on the one. How can you really know? The movie said that if you have a person worth fighting for, that is your sign that person is the one.

Sanders found the concept of the play to be empowering because it reveals actual women’s stories. “Real women were brave enough to share these stories, and it feels good to be selected to tell them,” Sanders said. “A lot of people teach us that we should be ashamed or frightened of things that our bodies do when they’re very natural. The message of the play is body positivity, the idea of embracing your body and being OK with it.”

UNI climbs into tie for 3rd COLE BAIR

Sports Writer

The University of Northern Iowa men’s basketball team looked to avenge this season’s previous overtime loss to the Loyola University Chicago Ramblers on Wednesday. With 9 minutes, 26 seconds to go in the first half, the Panthers were trailing Loyola 20-14 when the lineup of Matt Morrison, Matt Bohannon, Max Martino, Marvin Singleton and Ted Friedman went on a collective 15-5 run to give the Panthers a 29-19 lead with just minutes left in the first half. After the intermission it was all Panthers. They never once lost the lead their reserves built for them in the first half. The defense was irregularly effective against the Ramblers. After the game, head coach Ben Jacobson lauded his team’s efforts defensively. Jacobson also spoke about his decision to put junior forward Marvin Singleton into the starting lineup. “He’s going to throw his body around. Physically, he can do some things on the block. He’s able to move guys around a little bit,” Jacobson said. “It’s harder to get a deep post up against Marvin so we defend the block better. … Our guys take a lot of pride in the way Marv approaches practice, games, the way he goes about his business.”

The Panthers extended their lead to 14 points in the first half. Most notably, 10 Panthers played in the first half and all 10 scored. The Panthers led 31-21 at halftime. MSU’s Jarmar Gulley made two free throws to tie the game at 58 with 37 seconds remaining. Tuttle dropped in a gamehigh 21 points against the Bears, including a game-winning putback layup with 1 second remaining. Washpun drove the lane with the game tied at 58 and the clock nearing zero. Washpun missed the layup but Tuttle was there to tip it in for the game-winning score. The Panthers’ back-toback wins moved them into a three-way tie for third in the Missouri Valley Conference. The Panthers travel to Des Moines on Tuesday to take on the Drake University Bulldogs at 8 p.m. in the Knapp Center.

In a sport based on height, the UNI women’s basketball team was faced with the unenviable challenge of playing “small ball” against Missouri State University Friday evening. An injury to starting forward Hannah Schonhardt forced UNI head coach Tanya Warren to make some unorthodox lineup changes for the pivotal game for third place in the Missouri Valley Conference. The results were favorable, however, as UNI was able to cruise to a 79-60 victory against MSU. “We found out an hour before the game (that Schonhardt wasn’t playing), so it was a quick adjustment,” guard Brittni Donaldson said. “It was huge to get off to a good start.” The Panthers started off with an 8-0 run and steadily extended their lead during the first half. This was in large part due to the eight 3-pointers made on 17 attempts from beyond the arc. This, combined with the 22 percent that MSU shot for both its 3-point and overall field goal percentage, enabled the Panthers to build a 45-23 lead heading into the half. MSU seemingly had no answer for spacing issues the Panthers created, as the starting guard combo

of Donaldson and Madison Weekly combined for half of UNI’s total 3-pointers. It was the first time Weekly and Donaldson had started together in a game all season. “I like Brittni at (shooting guard), and I like being able to play Madison at the (point guard position) and run some sets for Brittni, or vice versa,” Warren said. “Then you have two pretty good ball handlers out there and two kids who can shoot the three pretty well.” Donaldson and Weekly weren’t the only ones who benefited from the altered lineup, as guard Stephanie Davison had a team and game-high 21 points even though she played much of the game at the forward spot, usually assumed by Schonhardt. She was second on the team in rebounds with seven and routinely made plays at the basket against the interior defense of MSU. “That’s the versatility that Steph brings,” Warren said. “You put a bigger kid on her and we can step her out to the three, and you put a smaller kid on her and we can post her up, and I thought she did a great job of picking and choosing tonight.” With the win, the Panthers moved to 12-11 overall and 8-4 in the MVC. They fought off their biggest threat to third place for the time being by sweeping the season series.
