by Eve Ensler
“The Vagina Monologues” is packed full of vulnerability, honesty, education, and anecdotes all centring around vaginas. Eve Ensler is the author of this book. Eve Ensler is a Tony award-winning playwright, performer, and activist. She is the author of the international phenomenon, The Vagina Monologues, which won an Obie and has been published in 48 languages and performed in over 140 countries. It is extremely primal, extremely real, purely human. It discusses human rights infringements around the world (in our own backyard and across the globe).
The book clearly tells women’s rights are human rights. So begins Eve Ensler’s hilarious, eye-opening tour into the last frontier, the forbidden zone at the heart of every woman. Adapted from the award-winning one-woman show that’s rocked audiences around the world, this groundbreaking book gives voice to a chorus of lusty, outrageous, poignant, and thoroughly human stories, transforming the question mark hovering over the female anatomy into a permanent victory sign. With laughter and compassion, Ensler transports her audiences to a world we’ve never dared to know, guaranteeing that no one who reads The Vagina Monologues will ever look at a woman’s body the same way again.
