2018 marks the twentieth anniversary of V-Day, the radical grassroots movement to end violence against women and girls, inspired by Eve Ensler's international sensation The Vagina Monologues. 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. A landmark work in women's empowerment, as relevant as ever after a year marked by unprecedented social and political protest in the face of unapologetic racism and misogyny, The Vagina Monologues honours women's sexuality in all its complexity, mystery and power. 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. 'This play changed the world. Seeing it changed my soul. Performing in it changed my life' Kerry Washington

Das Buch ist eine kleine, kunstfertige Anregung zur weiblichen Selbsterkenntnis, eine liebevolle Aufforderung an alle Frauen, den eigenen Weg zur Lust zu finden. Gleichzeitig ist es ein entschiedenes Plädoyer gegen sexuelle Gewalt. Alte Damen und Mädchen, Singles, Ehefrauen, Lesben, Professorinnen, Arbeiterinnen, Schauspielerinnen, Prostituierte wurden von der Auto-rin zu ihrer Vagina befragt. Ihre unterschiedlichen Erfahrungen und Ausdrucksweisen geben dem Buch eine lebendige Vielfältigkeit. Witz und Leichtigkeit stehen neben Traurigem und Erschütterndem. Eve Ensler hat einer großen Bandbreite von Gefühlen eine poetische und charmante Form gegeben. Die Vagina-Monologe wurden zwei Jahre lang in einem New Yorker Off-Broadway-Theater gespielt und wurde dann auch in zahlreichen Städten Europas aufgeführt.

How might women in the Bible tell their stories if they were prompted to do so by Eve Ensler's controversial play, The Vagina Monologues? This collection imagines some answers to that question. The monologues herein are written by a variety of authors, including scholars, undergraduates, clergy, and laywomen; the content of the narratives reflects this variety, being at times faithful or irreverent, tragic or even funny. All seek to give twenty-first-century voices to women in canonical texts--including the Hebrew Bible, Deuterocanonical books, and New Testament--who are often speechless, nameless, or otherwise marginalized. Not for the faint of heart, these monologues not only end the silences but also add flesh and bone to characters whose experiences have too easily been justified, metaphorized, or altogether ignored. By naming the torn places in these women's stories, this volume invites readers to encounter both the biblical characters and their contemporary interpreters with an attitude of compassionate listening. Our hope is that such compassionate listening may contribute not only to more just readings of sacred texts, but also to the mission of Eve Ensler and V-Day to end global violence against women and girls.

Sie ist klug, elegant und charmant. Eine Kämpferin mit Leidenschaft und Stil. Ein Vorbild für Frauen seit fünf Jahrzehnten. Hillary Clinton verehrt sie genauso wie die Schauspielerin Emma Watson. Lange vor Facebook-Chefin Sheryl Sandberg hat Gloria Steinem Frauen den Glauben an sich selbst gegeben. Sie hat provoziert, Mut gemacht und alte Rollenbilder über den Haufen geworfen. Auch heute noch, mit über achtzig Jahren, ist Gloria Steinem ein Star, der Frauen jeder Generation begeistert. In MY LIFE ON THE ROAD erzählt Steinem von einem rastlosen Leben, ausgefüllt mit Reisen und unvergesslichen Begegnungen. Schon als Kind, als Tochter eines durch die Lande tingelnden Antiquitätenhändlers aus Toledo, Ohio, war ihr eines klar geworden: Man braucht nicht unbedingt einen geografischen Anker im Leben, dafür aber ein klares Ziel vor Augen.

From South Park to Kathy Acker, and from Lars Von Trier to Sex and the City, women's sexual organs are demonized. Rees traces the fascinating evolution of this demonization, considering how calling the 'c-word' obscene both legitimates and perpetuates the fractured identities of women globally. Rees demonstrates how writers, artists, and filmmakers contend with the dilemma of the vagina's puzzlingly 'covert visibility'. In our postmodern, porn-obsessed culture, vaginas appear to be everywhere, literally or symbolically but, crucially, they are as silenced as they are objectified. The Vagina: A Literary and Cultural History examines the paradox of female genitalia through five fields of artistic expression: literature, film, TV, visual, and performance art. There is a peculiar paradox ? unlike any other ? regarding female genitalia. Rees focuses on this paradox of what is termed the 'covert visibility' of the vagina and on its monstrous manifestations. That is, what happens when the female body refuses to be pathologized, eroticized, or rendered subordinate to the will or intention of another? Common, and often offensive, slang terms for the vagina can be seen as an attempt to divert attention away from the reality of women's lived sexual experiences such that we don't 'look' at the vagina itself ? slang offers a convenient distraction to something so taboo. The Vagina: A Literary and Cultural History is an important contribution to the ongoing debate in understanding the feminine identity

This book explores the extent to which women have been initiators, mobilizers, and driving forces of social transformation in China. The book considers how conceptions of women’s roles have changed as China has moved from state socialism to engagement with capitalist globalization, examines the growth of women’s gender and sexual consciousness and social movements for women’s rights, including for marginalized social and sex/gender grouops, and discusses women’s roles in society-state interactions, including many forms of social activism, cultural events, educational innovations, and more. Overall, the book demonstrates that women have not simply been passive receivers of the consequences of the forces of global capitalism, but that they have had a profound, active impact on social transformation in China.

The Title Eating Pussy is not meant to be derogatory, at least not completely. A joke while I was working for a metal fabrication plant was that men's facial hair grew because they ate pussy. It was meant as a sign of maleness, and manhood, in its way. It was also a play on words. Eating pussy of course is the term used by men mostly to describe oral sex. As I read the book, I was ingesting it...its title the Vagina Monologues. It is a humorous look mostly at this well-written book about a woman's self-discovery. Being one who has sought counseling, and had conversations with my walls, This book was part of my work in dealing with myself. Being a bit broken from the divorce and loss, the exercise in reading and writing helped me if no one else, to find humor and love once again

»Hari vereint präzise Recherche mit einer zutiefst menschlichen Erzählung. Dieses Buch wird eine dringend notwendige Debatte auslösen.« Glenn Greenwald Der Krieg gegen die Drogen gilt inzwischen als gescheitert, der Handel mit Drogen ist ein blühendes Geschäft, alle Maßnahmen gegen den Konsum sind weitgehend erfolglos. Woran liegt das? Der britische Journalist Johann Hari begibt sich auf eine einzigartige Reise – von Brooklyn über Mexiko bis nach Deutschland – und erzählt die Geschichten derjenigen, deren Leben vom immerwährenden Kampf gegen Drogen geprägt ist: von Dealern, Süchtigen, Kartellmitgliedern, den Verlierern und Profiteuren. Mit seiner grandiosen literarischen Reportage schreibt Hari sowohl eine Geschichte des Krieges gegen Drogen als auch ein mitreißendes und streitbares Plädoyer zum Umdenken. »Hervorragender Journalismus, packend erzählt.« Naomi Klein »Phantastisch!« Noam Chomsky

The selections cross genres as well as bridge disciplines and cultures.
