“The heart is capable of sacrifice. So is the vagina. The heart is able to forgive and repair. It can change it's shape to let us in. It can expand to let us out. So can the vagina. It can ache for us and stretch for us, die for us and bleed and bleed us into this difficult, wondrous world. So can the vagina. I was there in the room. I remember.”
I wanted to read this book for a while. However, was always one of those that I would read another day. with the Good reads group "One shared shelf", early this year I decided "This is it! I am going to buy it and read it."
As I have a kobo, I decided for the on line version. And I was not disappointed.
This review is going to be slightly different due to the kind of book this is.
This is a book for everybody no matter sex or religion. It shows women talking about... guess? About their vaginas, of course!
But is so much more than that! It show show empowered women are this days, how it changed all over the ages and how women relate with their own Vaginas.
Women at the beginning are a bit shy but afterwards they get excited talking about it.
Another book recommended by Ema Watson which is not a disappointment.
How is it written
Easy to read.
The text flows and gives the testemony of real people.
How is it written.
The real testimonies
Feminism is not only having a vagina. In the book it can sometimes feel that Feminism is only that.

This was an interesting reading. Although the book is not perfect [which one is?!) it is recommended. with it we get to know a sit how women relate themselves with their vaginas, the world and feminism.
