The Vagina Monologues

February 2, 2007

From the somber and sad story of a woman living "Under the Burqua" to the enlightened and humorous story of a woman who discovers her sensual side while at the "Vagina Workshop," the scenes are purposeful and moving, tugging the audience in many different directions all to an ultimate end: strength and encouragement to recognize being a woman should neither be oppressed nor embarrassing.
