The Vagina Monologues are a series of performances written and delivered by Eve Ensler in 1996. They acted as a tool for female empowerment as they instigated conversations about love, sex, birth and the female experience. Since 1996, they have been performed across the world. The Michigan State University Sexual Assault Program will perform the monologues on January 31. We spoke with a few of these women on Exposure.

What a great year 2013 was for music. At least if you look in the right places. Music for the sake of shock value may have spread across the mainstream, but the Impact is here to quell your agitation with the best new music out there. So here is my list for the Top 10 Albums of 2013
1. A Great Big Pile of Leaves – You’re Always On My Mind
The sophomore release from AGBPOL continues to purport their signature style of nostalgia-based, care-free indie rock. Though they seemed to have dropped the underlying mathy inspiration, they’ve created a very stripped-down, lick-based record that doesn’t stray from what fans crave.
Happy New Year from the Impact!! Tonight Chelbucket took us on a trip back in time to cover her highlights from 2013 with artists such as Smash Mouth, Shaggy, and Led Zeppelin. She also gave our ears a taste of what is to come for 2014: The Crew Cuts, Frank Sinatra and more!
Remember, the best is yet to come!
We Are The Champions – Queen
Roses – Outkast
The Longest Time – Billy Joel
California Love – 2Pac,Roger Troutman, Dr. Dre
Here is a recap of the Impact’s Top 89 Songs of 2013! Thanks for helping us ring in the new year and here’s to great new music in 2014!
