-->''"I bet you're worried. I was worried. I was worried about vaginas. I was worried about what we think about vaginas, and even more worried that we don't think about them."''
-->'''-- The opening of the play'''

Controversial play written by Eve Ensler. It debuted in 1996 on Broadway, at Westside Theater. It's pretty much ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin, being a bunch of monologues that connect the vagina to different themes, such as love, rape, sex, menstruation, genital mutilation, birth, masturbation, orgasm, and slang terms for the part.

The monologues include:

* I Was 12; My Mother Slapped Me: A piece all about periods.
* Hair: A woman whose husband wanted her to shave despite her objections.
* The Flood: An older woman who was ashamed of the area "down there" and how it functioned in her youth.
* The Vagina Workshop: A woman details her experiences with learning how to love her vagina.
* Because He Liked To Look At It: "This monologue was based on an interview with a woman who had a good experience with a man."
* My Angry Vagina: Rant against tampons, douches, and OB/GYN's.
* My Vagina Was My Village: A collection of interviews from women in Bosnia that were in rape camps.
* The Little Coochie Snorcher That Could: The most controversial out of the set. A 13-year-old girl who was violently raped by a man as a child is seduced by a much-older woman and she sees the latter experience as positive, saying "if it was rape, it was a good rape." The age was changed to 16 after the most severe criticisms were made.
* Reclaiming "Cunt": ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin.
* Six-Year-Old Girl: A six-year-old girl is asked about her vagina. One of the more controversial pieces due to the subjectively sexual nature of the questions.
* The Woman Who Loved to Make Vaginas Happy: A story about a lesbian dominatrix sex worker who loved making women moan. Comedic in that the performer(s) simulates different types of moans/orgasms.
* I Was There in the Room: Eve Ensler's personal account of her granddaughter's birth.
* Under the Burqa: Added to the original performance in 2003. It's about women in Afghanistan under the rule of the Taliban.
* They Beat the Girl Out of My Boy: A transwoman's experiences.
* Crooked Braid: An American Indian woman's experiences with abuse.
* The Memory of Her Face: Women faced with acid attacks.

It has since become the cornerstone of the "V-Day" movement, which aims to raise awareness of rape and violence against women. As such, the play is frequently performed by colleges every year around Valentines Day.
