Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - A play standing up against sexism and sexual violence is making a stop in Fargo, one of only three locations nationwide.

Play directors and participants are busy getting ready for Slut the Play at Ecce gallery in Fargo at seven Thursday night.

The show tackles the slut-shaming culture taking over teenagers’ lives across the country, where young women are struggling to find their place.

A group of girls from New York City will talk about how judgment and over-sexualization in our society serve as a path for sexual violence and what we can do to help.

Slut the Play is only showing in Fargo, Los Angeles and New York City.

Katie Cappiello/Play Co-Director/Writer: "Assault and shame, they don't discriminate. It affects everyone, everywhere, at pretty much any age. So it's really important that communities come together, all communities, and talk about this."

Meg McInerney/Play Co-Director: "We hope that audiences will leave with an understanding of what it's really like to be a teenage girl today, the complexity and the nuances that these girls face, and the challenges, and how we can better support them in growing up."

There are still tickets left for the show Thursday at 7 p.m. or you can catch it Saturday at 3 p.m. at NDSU.

The group will also be speaking with Moorhead High School students Friday.
