"I was worried about vaginas. I was worried about what we think about vaginas, and even more worried that we don't think about them. . . . So I decided to talk to women about their vaginas, to do vagina interviews, which became vagina monologues. I talked with over two hundred women. I talked to old women, young women, married women, single women, lesbians, college professors, actors, corporate professionals, sex workers, African American women, Hispanic women, Asian American women, Native American women, Caucasian women, Jewish women. At first women were reluctant to talk. They were a little shy. But once they got going, you couldn't stop them."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.

3.0 Monologi waginy
Włos mi się na głowie jeży! Ale to dobra książka. I bynajmniej nie całkiem o tym. To wołanie feministki. Tytuł trochę zwodzący...Hmm.. Po takiej lekturze trudno się zdecydować co dalej czytać. Tak książka pustoszy wyobraźnię!

Well, one thing is for sure. This deserves a read - I don't know whether I should say it or not (since I am rather conservative)- but women must read this. That is, to get a holistic, more feminine picture of female sexuality and violence against women. We have all came across numerous incidents in ...

The US Presidential Election is now in full swing. Particularly if you are a US citizen who happens to possess a vagina, you will want to avoid this crude, tasteless, completely unamusing campaign ad. Shame on you, Real Republican Real Women Of Real America!

Mostly I read this on a plane to irritate my boss at the time - a particularly flamboyant gay man, who spent the entire flight with his fingers in his ears, singing "LaLaLaLa, I'm not listening, I'm not listening..."
