Voice Power: The Vagina Monologues

Voice Power: The Vagina Monologues



by Cordelia Zafiro


A woman’s body remains a mystery to most – including women themselves.  The female form, its parts and functions are usually discussed in hushed voices, behind closed doors.  Periods, sex and the vagina are still ensconced in outdated and stereotypical attitudes.  Many women have never become acquainted with their bits.

How empowering is it for women to talk about their bodies and the biology?  How can a play such as The Vagina Monologues by Eve Ensler, help women find their voice in a world where the rules about power, sex and voice are decided by people other than her?

After deciding to perform in The Vagina Monologues, Astute Radio’s Cordelia Zafiro started a conversation about the female body and sexuality.  You’ll never guess what one women does with her vagina for a living!

If you’ve ever wondered about your “down there” or wanted to know how other women feel about their’s, listen to what Cordelia and her fellow cast members share.
