India is still a predominantly conservative country where kissing is rarely seen in films and sex is barely talked about. But, for the past 10 years, the Indian version of the worldwide play, The Vagina Monologues, has been trying to challenge some of those taboos. It’s collection of most intimate and heart-rending experiences on issues like love, rape, female genital mutilation, masturbation, birth and orgasms.No one , man or woman , will ever be the same again after viewing the vagina monologues.
The Vagina Monologues, is a play that should seen by everyone. Its beauty and strength lies in the fact, that the women whose stories these are belong to the indomitable group of people we call survivors. We see the vagina as embodying the spirit of woman, the essence of womankind. And it is that very essence, that very spirit that is assaulted, brutalized, and rarely celebrated each and every day, in just about every corner of the globe.
