The Vagina Monologues
by Eve Ensler
Vagina, vagina, vagina. There, now you can get over the word and
we can continue with the review. I saw the play in Austin a few
years ago with one of my Sibylline sisters. Neither of us had heard
much about it other than people saying "You HAVE to see it."
Well, we did. And I have to say "You HAVE to see it."--- (Guys,
if this play comes to your part of the world, see it. It is celebrates
not only woen but all who enter with perfect love and perfect trust
I'm recommending it for this pagan oriented book list because it
is a book about women's mysteries. If I had a chance I would take
each one of my students to the play - male and female - in order
to fulfill our class objective for women's mysteries. You can't
help but laugh, cry, and realize the beauty and power of women lies
in embracing our selves and all that we have been given, and that
includes our sexuality. To recognize and not be afraid of our bodies,
our sexuality, our nature is within the pagan way.
By now it may seem old to many of you, it's been around now for
many years. Yet I still find that it is an important work that celebrates
female sexuality. I recommend reading the book out loud with some
friends and some wine under a full moon.
