A past star of television’s Survivor, social entrepreneur and writer Alexis Jones will give a presentation at 5 p.m. March 23 in Steele Hall’s Mainstage Theatre.

Jones is founder of the female empowerment company i am that girl, “which empowers local groups of young women all over the country to collaborate instead of compete, contribute instead of consume and build a powerhouse community of phenomenal women,” Jones says.

Her presentation is part of Cal U’s celebration of Women’s History Month.

Jones will return to the stage to participate as a guest cast member in the opening night of The Vagina Monologues. This award-winning play by Eve Ensler celebrates women's sexuality and will take place at 7 p.m. in Steele Hall’s Blaney Theatre.

Cost to see The Vagina Monologues is $10 for community members, $5 for students.

Tickets will be available starting March 14 in the Natali Student Center, or can be purchased at the door.

Also appearing today is Ariko Iso, an athletic trainer for the Pittsburgh Steelers and the only female athletic trainer in the National Football League. She will give a presentation at 9 a.m. in room 136 B/C of Hamer Hall.
