Forget everything you thought about being a woman, and pick up this book. Or, if you prefer, embrace everything you are about being a woman, read this book and scream to the heavens in relief because there are other women who empathize and are eager to share their personal experiences with you. Known for being somewhat explicit in its themes and groundbreaking for the women's movement, this book is not for everyone, but for those who are looking for a change of pace from novels and are willing to take the plunge, you won't regret it. The genius of this work lies in its form, making it accessible to any reader, and the powerful message Ensler manages to convey in so few words.
Drawing on conversations with hundreds of women about their genitalia, the author presents a collection of performance pieces from her show of the same name.
