Trivia

Although Eve Ensler claims in the film that the "Coochie Snorcher" segment is unchanged from the actual interview, the original text of the monologue as it was performed onstage involved a 13 year old girl (as opposed to 16) and ended with the proclamation "It was a good rape." Feminist critics accused Ensler of hypocrisy for insinuating that lesbian rape and pedophilia were acceptable and nurturing for young women while later condemning heterosexual rape, leading Ensler to change the girl's age and remove the "Good rape" line.

Dismayed
25 May 2002 | by LindySuSee all my reviews

I am shocked that a third of the reviews written were negative. The Vagina Monologues, while overtly from a feminist viewpoint, are anything but abrasive to men. In fact, I've known more than one male who has been converted to thinking "maybe there might be something to this whole feminism thing after all" from seeing this play. From my not-so-limited experience, the Vagina Monologues has been one of the most moving pieces of literature for feminism, simply because it is not abrasive to masculinity as other "gyno-centric" pieces may be-- also because it mixes joy and pain to give an accurate depiction of womanhood. To make the entire play funny-- and, yes, very witty and clever-- would be to give a glossed-over version that panders to a certain audience and is no better than it should be. To make it completely serious would alienate the audience and betray the play's purpose, which is to open eyes that might have been shut from lingering fingers of "penile-centric" society.

In all, the Vagina Monologues is one of the best-written and well-performed plays I've ever seen, a classic of feminist literature, one that every adult of the 21st century should see. For those readers who are considering seeing the Vagina Monologues for the first time, you will enjoy it, male or female. Unless, of course, you are already prejudiced against the female gender and those working for its equality.
