Eve Ensler's thoughts and monologues are always inspiring.
I love being a girl and there's nothing shameful in that.
"My short skirt is happiness
I can feel myself on the ground.
I am here. I am hot.
My short skirt is a liberation
flag in the women's army.
I declare these streets, any streets,
my vagina's country."
"Ask yourself these questions:
Why am I whispering when I have something to say?
Why am I adding a question mark at the end
of all my sentences?
Why am I apologizing every time I express my needs?
Why am I hunching over?
Starving myself when I love food?
Pretending it doesn't mean that much to me?
Hurting myself when I mean to scream?
Why am I waiting
You know the truth:
Sometimes it does hurt that much
Horses can feel love
Your mother wanted more than that
It's easier to be mean than smart
But it isn't who you are."
