Written by Eve Ensler, the Tony Award winning playwright, performer, and activist, ‘The Vagina Monologues’ is made up of a varying number of monologues read by a varying number of women with each monologue dealing with aspects of the feminine experience, such as sex, love, rape, menstruation, birth, orgasm, the various common names for the vagina, or simply as a physical aspect of the body. The interviews were conducted in 1996 with 200 women about their views on sex, relationships, and violence against women. A recurring theme throughout the piece is the vagina as a tool of female empowerment, and the ultimate embodiment of individuality. The New York Times called the play "probably the most important piece of political theater of the last decade." The play traditionally highlights awareness and raises money toward working to end violence against women, therefore, WHITE RIBBON AUSTRALIA will be this year's inspiring charity.
