"I was worried about vaginas. I was worried about what we think about vaginas, & even more worried that we don't think about them... So I decided to talk to women about their vaginas, to do vagina interviews, which became vagina monologues. I talked with over 200 women. I talked to old women, young women, married women, single women, lesbians, college professors, actors, corporate professionals, sex workers, African American women, Hispanic women, Asian American women, Native American women, Caucasian women, Jewish women. At first women were reluctant to talk. They were a little shy. But once they got going, you couldn't stop them."
