The Vagina Monologues at the Michigan state Capitol in Lansing, Michigan – June 18, 2012 – PHOTOS & VIDEO

"Yesterday, Monday, June 18, 2012, upwards of 5,000 women and men and children descended on the state Capitol in Lansing, Michigan to reclaim that place of power for women and their vaginas. After being told that uttering the word “vagina” was dirty and “lacked decorum”, Representative Lisa Brown and her colleague Barb Byrum were censored and banned from speaking."
interview with Eve Ensler

"... The event finished up with Eve Ensler giving a rousing and powerful speech. 
This is where we say: “VAGINA!” Say it!
Say it!
Not ’cause we’re provocative. Not ’cause we’re dirty. Not ’cause we’re trying to make you uncomfortable. Not ’cause we’re immoral or inappropriate.
‘Cause they’re beautiful and real and mystical and alive and powerful and SO ARE WE!
And I wanna say to all these Republicans: when we are free, YOU are free!..."
