Eve Ensler Talks Cancellation of THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES at Massachusetts CollegeEve Ensler Talks Cancellation of THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES at Massachusetts College
by BWW News Desk - Jan 17, 2015

Blogger Howard Sherman spoke this morning play's writer, Eve Ensler who shared her reaction to the news, and the still evolving situation. She shared 'This is my perspective on it: The Vagina Monologues is a play. It's one play. It was never meant to speak for all women and it was never a play about what it means to be a woman. It was a play about what it means to have a vagina. It was very specific. I don't I ever said that the definition of a woman - that a woman is defined by having a vagina. I think we have to be able to live in a world where talking about our vaginas is legitimate, due to that three and half billion women have them.' (more...)
