When Eve Ensler was writing her award-winning play, The Vagina Monologues, she interviewed over 200 women from diverse backgrounds. These interviews began with two simple questions: “If your vagina got dressed, what would it wear? If your vagina could talk, what would it say?” Here are some answers from the Women’s Ensemble Theater Troupe.
