the vagina monologues
"The first time I ever performed The Vagina Monologues, I was sure somebody would shoot me...twenty years ago no-one said the word 'vagina'. I say 'vagina' because I have read the statistics and bad things are happening to women's vaginas everywhere: 500,000 women are raped every year in the USA; 100 million women have been genitally mutilated worldwide; the list goes on. I say 'vagina' because I want these bad things to stop; the only way to make that possible is to empower women to talk without fear of punishment or retribution" - Eve Ensler 2018
Witty and irreverent, compassionate and wise, this award-winning masterpiece gives voice to real women's deepest fantasies, fears, anger and pleasure, and calls for a world where all women are safe, equal, free and alive in their bodies.
