One woman shared traumatic childhood sexual experiences that she felt were ameliorated by an adolescent liaison with an older woman, and Ms Ensler shared an account of the birth of her granddaughter. The performance was clearly designed to provoke—riffing on the c-word and revelling in the discomfort generated by such a frank discussion—but it was also designed to amuse and move. After each performance, they would come up to Ms Ensler to share their stories of sexual abuse at the hands of strangers, boyfriends, husbands, fathers, and the feelings of shame and isolation that trailed that abuse.
