Talking About the Vagina at Catholic Institutions of Higher Learning


Throughout the first decade of the 21st century, on several Catholic College campuses it was possible to attend a performance of Eve Ensler’s Vagina Monologues, a play which, among “celebrations” of the female experience of the vagina, contains a “romantic” scene, where a 24-year-old woman seduces a 13-year-old girl. The woman invites the girl into her car, takes her to her house, supplies her with vodka, and seduces her, calling the experience “a kind of heaven.” (One wonders what outcry would occur if priests with same-sex attractions were to come to the defense of the play). Nearly through the century's second decade, how is the play faring? Read the latest from the Cardinal Newman Society.

Founded in 1993, the mission of The Cardinal Newman Society is to promote and defend faithful Catholic education.
The Society seeks to fulfill its mission in numerous ways, including supporting education that is faithful to the teaching and tradition of the Catholic Church; producing and disseminating research and publications on developments and best practices in Catholic education; and keeping Catholic leaders and families informed.
