Contemporary and compelling Vagina Stories from a diverse POV, presented by Los Angeles women of South Asian descent, from their honest, open, and emotional hearts.
Who are these women?
Some were born in the US, others in various parts of India and South Asia, each exposed to a subculture expressed in unique languages, food, and social customs.
As the women ponder about their disparate upbringings, they bring up unique questions and specific experiences related to their womanhood.
“Bollywood played a big part in shaping my standards and expectations of life.”
“All my life, the society said that I must protect my virginity…as one protects a precious jewel.”
“I cried when I found out I was having a girl.”
“Can you imagine your insides being ripped out?”
“Turns out, I am a woman.”
“At age 14, I was what 1930s writers would describe as frigid. Until I met her… Avery.”
“That was when he backhanded me.”
At the end of their individual commentaries, each woman becomes who she is today and together, they celebrate Womanhood!
Inspired by “The Vagina Monologues” (Eve Ensler, 1996) and “Yoni Ki Baat” (South Asian Sisters, 2003).
