As part of the V-Day events for global revolution to end violence against women and children, the fifth edition of the Vagina Conversations played to sold-out houses last Friday and Saturday in Byron Bay.
Eleven stories were presented by MC and event director Zenith Virago. All of the conversations shared a personal experience of a vagina from eleven different viewpoints.
From the tragic to the comedic, from the unbearable to bearing down and from love and sex with women, with men and with one’s self, the audience was able to see a small window into the vast array of emotions of being a woman, and not, and living to tell the tale.
A highlight of the event was a conversation from Mira Stannard whose story was uplifting and inspiring as she spoke about the birth of her babies and the Birth and Beyond movement in Nimbin.
With stories in word, song, dance and roller skates, the shows wrapped up each night with singer/songwriter Danni Carr talking about her ‘Fanta Pants’ and leading a rousing chorus of My, My, My Vagina (Tom Jones would have loved it).
