Monologues empowers women

(02/21/05 5:00am)

It amazes me that in the laundry list of women’s issues that Nathan Carleton approved in his Feb. 17 column as “fine” to work on (eating disorders, mutilation and sexual assault. That’s it?) what The Vagina Monologues represents just wasn’t one of them. Celebrating our bodies and making people aware of how women learn about their sexuality (sometimes through violence and sometimes through tenderness) were apparently detrimental to our “goal.” What’s worse, I find it ironic that all of the proceeds collected from this “overpriced” play, as he complained, go towards rape victims in Iraq. Could there be a better cause for women’s rights than this one?
