The vagina monologues


Written by Eve Ensler

Directed by Rhian Firmin

This small but dramatically funny, tender, provocative and ultimately political piece is a series of interviews with a diverse group of over 200 women about their vaginas: young and old, married and single; heterosexual, bisexual, and lesbian; working class women, professional women, and sex workers; women of various races. Ensler explores many topics: sex, relationships, sexual violence, sex work, menstruation, and more, and we get to meet women from all corners of the world. The Vagina Monologues is working to erase the taboo surrounding the vagina through fighting for female empowerment and advocating to stop violence against girls and women.
