Vagina Monologues 2008

It was held last May 2, 2008 (i know, this post is uber late) and marks the second run in Iligan City in celebration of Women's Month. The Vagina Monologues is a play by feminist Eve Ensler. It talks about different monologues collected all over the world from interviews by Ensler. The pieces can be dead hilarious (like mine) to really moving stories (comfort women).
My piece is entitled "The Vagina Workshop". It talks about a woman coming from a high class in Britain who did not even know that she had a clitoris, much less know where it actually was. It meant to show that women's issues and society's marginalization of them was all encompassing. That even the high and mighty rich people were affected by these issues.

It was really a great experience to be part of a diverse cast and great play. I hope more people would come to see it and realize that it's really not a porn - play (HELL NO!!!!!!! ignorants!). The money raised was donated to the Women's Crisis Center in Iligan City. So the more people who came to watch, the more money we could give and help the center.

People should realize that even if we are in the 21st century there are still crimes predominantly commited to women. We need more action. Each one should help.

Have the balls to act now.
