It’s been 20 years since Eve Ensler’s The Vagina Monologues premiered on Broadway. In 1997, the play broke ground by giving voice to women speaking candidly about their bodies and experiences.
“Not unexpectedly in the wake of 2016 presidential election and the #MeToo movement, women have a lot to say right now..."
"My hope is that V2: Creation Myth will shine a light on our collective experience as women...We have to create a new future where we’re supporting one another.”
Twenty years ago, when actress, playwright and activist Eve Ensler first wrote The Vagina Monologues—a series of stories based on 200 interviews with girls and women around the world—she intended it as a celebration of body and sexuality, despite the often traumatic experiences delivered on stage, of rape, and betrayal, and sex work, and bleeding.
"We’re waiting for a big change and looking for ways to make a new start.”
“A lot of this is listening to each and hearing other people’s stories...the hope is people connect a little more on a human level by having some constructive civil dialogue.”
