vagina monologues ad censors word vagina

A Wisconsin newspaper just made “The Vagina Monologues” a whole lot dirtier: changing the title to XXXXXXX. The Ashland Daily Press censored the word “vagina” in an ad for the upcoming production of the famous Eve Ensler play.  In the ad the word “vagina” was marked out repeatedly with Xs in order to obscure the word.  The paper also removed the full description of the production and an additional warning that the play contained material about violence against women, sexual content, and graphic language.  At least on their web site, the Ashland Daily Press explained that in the play women “reference subject pertaining to women’s bodies, different experiences both good and traumatic, self image and empowerment.” It looks like they could use a little empowerment of their own if they’re still treating “vagina” like a dirty word.
