A global activist movement started by Ensler to stop violence against women and girls. I don't understand how you can relate,... by people using the word more freely/openly or as Jui Mhartestates, states, "But now, saying it makes me happy" will deter violence against women and girls.
"We're opening it up"...I thought that line needed the "no pun intended" phrase...it cracked me up!
The play about women's vaginas is ballsy???? I think we may be mixing metaphores here.
Observer - I just wanted to let you know I have a splendid life, but thank you for the thought.
SugarMagnolia, you need to get a life.
EdithAnn - according to the VicAd, Aprill and her hubby are on the way out (although, apparently Aprill will still be a guest columnist for the VicAd), so it probably doesn't matter what level of trash she sinks to now, she can get away with it with no repercussions.
There's a national Vagina Day? God bless America! I hope there is a parade or something where they will be on display.
BTW, If women really LOVED talking about their vaginas, they would have a lot more men listening.........NFL TV ratings might even go down!
I had the pleasure of watching Gillian Anderson (she of The X-Files fame) perform one of the monologues in London years ago - I would encourage all to go.
Call me when Puppetry of the Penis (Google it) finally comes to Victoria.
So if it "isn't just for shock value", does that mean it is for some shock value?
This is a very tastefully done play and I encourage folks to attend this event.
"But doing the play isn't just for shock value. The performances on Feb. 11 and 12 are tied to V-Day, a global activist movement started by Ensler to stop violence against women and girls."
Aprill Brandon kind of devalued that effort when she used the word 'poontang' in her 'humor' column.
