Description : A landmark in women’s empowerment—as relevant as ever in the age of #MeToo—that honors female sexuality in all its complexity It’s been more than twenty years since Eve Ensler’s international sensation The Vagina Monologues gave birth to V-Day, the radical, global grassroots movement to end violence against women and girls. This special edition features six never-before-published monologues, a new foreword by National Book Award winner Jacqueline Woodson, a new introduction by the author, and a new afterword by One Billion Rising director Monique Wilson on the stage phenomenon’s global impact. Witty and irreverent, compassionate and wise, this award-winning masterpiece gives voice to real women’s deepest fantasies, fears, anger, and pleasure, and calls for a world where all women are safe, equal, free, and alive in their bodies. Praise for The Vagina Monologues “Probably the most important piece of political theater of the last decade.”—The New York Times “This play changed the world. Seeing it changed my soul. Performing in it changed my life. I am forever indebted to Eve Ensler and the transformative legacy of this play.”—Kerry Washington “Spellbinding, funny, and almost unbearably moving . . . both a work of art and an incisive piece of cultural history, a poem and a polemic, a performance and a balm and a benediction.”—Variety “Often wrenching, frequently riotous. . . . Ensler is an impassioned wit.”—Los Angeles Times “Extraordinary . . . a compelling rhapsody of the female essence.”—Chicago Tribune
