A landmark in women's empowerment-as relevant as ever in the age of #MeToo-that honors female sexuality in all its complexity It's been more than twenty years since Eve Ensler's international sensation The Vagina Monologues gave birth to V-Day, the radical, global grassroots movement to end violence against women and girls. This special edition features six never-before-published monologues, a new foreword by National Book Award winner Jacqueline Woodson, a new introduction by the author, and a new afterword by One Billion Rising director Monique Wilson on the stage phenomenon's global impact. Witty and irreverent, compassionate and wise, this award-winning masterpiece gives voice to real women's deepest fantasies, fears, anger, and pleasure, and calls for a world where all women are safe, equal, free, and alive in their bodies. Praise for The Vagina Monologues "Probably the most important piece of political theater of the last decade."-The New York Times "This play changed the world. Seeing it changed my soul. Performing in it changed my life. I am forever indebted to Eve Ensler and the transformative legacy of this play."-Kerry Washington "Spellbinding, funny, and almost unbearably moving...?oth a work of art and an incisive piece of cultural history, a poem and a polemic, a performance and a balm and a benediction."-Variety "Often wrenching, frequently riotous...? Ensler is an impassioned wit."-Los Angeles Times "Extraordinary...? compelling rhapsody of the female essence."-Chicago Tribune
