Description

I decided to talk to women about their vaginas, to do vagina interviews, which became vagina monologues ... At first women were reluctant to talk. They were a little shy. But once they got going, you couldn't stop them. Women secretly love to talk about their vaginas. They get very excited, mainly because no one's ever asked them before.' Eve Ensler A poignant and hilarious tour of the last frontier, the ultimate forbidden zone, THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES is a celebration of female sexuality in all its complexity and mystery. Hailed as the bible for a new generation of women, it has been performed in cities and colleges throughout the world, and has inspired a dynamic grassroots movement - V-Day - to stop violence against women. Witty and irreverent, compassionate and wise, Eve Ensler's award-winning masterpiece gives voice to real women's deepest fantasies and fears, guaranteeing that no one who reads it will ever look at a woman's body, or think of sex, in quite the same way again.show more

Review quote

Spellbinding, funny, and almost unbearably moving...it is both a work of art and an incisive piece of cultural history, a poem and a polemic, a performance and a balm and a benediction -- Variety Both a celebration of women's sexuality and a condemnation of its violation -- New York Times Eve Ensler is the Pied Piper. She is leading women and the world to a different consciousness of the essence of women -- Gillian Anderson Women have entrusted Eve with their most intimate experiences, from sex to birthing...I think readers, men as well as women, will emerge from these pages feeling more free within themselves - and about each other -- Gloria Steinem Filled with generous energy and delight * THE TIMES * Fascinating ... I suggest you read it aloud on the Central Line and really wake people up * TIME OUT * A million women can't be wrong - it IS good! * Jonathan Myserson * Laugh-out-loud funny and deeply poignant * INDEPENDENT *show more
