Vaginal Discourse: Reconnecting the Female Body Through Performance Delaenya Stapleton McNair Scholars Program University of California, Davis Department of Women and Gender Studies Professor Juana María Rodríguez

Slide 2

"I wager you\'re concerned. I was concerned. That is the reason I started this piece. I was agonized over vaginas. I was stressed over what we think about vaginas, and considerably more agonized that we don\'t thoroughly consider them. I was stressed over my own particular vagina. It required a connection of different vaginas—a group, a society of vaginas. There\'s so much obscurity and mystery encompassing them—like the Bermuda Triangle. No one ever reports once more from that point." – E ve Ensler, The Vagina Monologs

After being presented to this work, has the way you view or approach your body changed? "I turned out to be substantially more glad for being a lady. It is anything but difficult to wind up self-debasing about yourself, when you are consistently subjected to a torrent of "ladies are less clever, ladies are influenced by their hormones, and so on." It is an exceptionally harming environment. In the wake of performing in the Vagina Monologs, and seeing the pride these ladies took in their bodies, and their encounters, I could be glad for my body, notwithstanding when society to a great extent let me know I ought to be embarrassed about certain aspects". Participant #36, Question #4

Navigating Cultural Logics "[I]dentities are shaped because of the social rationales of heteronormativity, white matchless quality, and misogyny — social rationales that … work to undergird state power". José Esteban Muñoz Disidentifications

Slide 15

What are you political and/or individual inspirations for being required in the generation? "I trust the V-Day is an impetus for change. It gives ladies and young ladies power and a spot to consolidate and locate their aggregate voice. It gives them the fearlessness and bolster they have to resist the plague levels of brutality and sexism. It advises us that our bodies, vaginas, and sexuality are not to be embarrassed about. It gives us the chance to impart this thought to others and open up exchange in our groups". Member #67, Question #3

Slide 16

Conclusion Performing "The Vagina Monologs" has empowered young ladies to go up against socially affected disguised disgrace, mystery and shame encompassing their vaginas. Along these lines setting up a positive personality body association with their vaginas, bringing about an expansion in their sentiments of self-regard.
