outrage and empowerment

Eve Ensler’s The Vagina Monologues has been staged for the first time in Pakistan:

[Producer] Risbi said the show, which features three women talking about their vaginas and is split into sections such as “If your vagina could talk, what would it say?” and “The Little Coochi Snorcher That Could,” had received a “mixed reaction.”
“I think a lot of people were outraged,” she told BBC World Service’s Everywoman programme.
“A couple walked out saying ‘why can’t we use other parts of a woman’s body apart from the vagina.’

    I think the Vagina Monologues are a worthy idea, deserving of applause. I love vaginas. As who doesn’t?

    But I think staging them in Pakistan is evidence of profound mental retardation or sheer social stupidity.
