Summary ""SLUT is truthful, raw, and immediate! Experience this play and witness what American young women live with everyday."--Gloria Steinem - Remember the slut at your school? Whether used as a slur or reclaimed as an expression of sexy confidence, this word has been used as an acceptable excuse for rape, bullying, and the sexual double standard. In the spirit of The Vagina Monologues, this riveting, critically acclaimed play, written in collaboration with New York City high school students, sheds light on enduring feminist issues. The play is accompanied by production notes, a guide for talk-backs, and provocative essays by Carol Gilligan, Jennifer Baumgardner, and Jarrod Chin of Mentors in Violence Prevention (MVP), among others, providing the resources to inspire change within our communities and ourselves. Katie Cappiello and Meg McInerney are the creative director and managing director of the revolutionary feminist acting school The Arts Effect. In their ten years of teaching, they have brought theater arts programming to public, private, and special education schools worldwide. Their work has been hailed by Secretary of State Hillary R. Clinton, Gloria Steinem, Eve Ensler, Kathy Najimy, Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney, Tina Fey, and Amy Poehler, and they have been honored by The National Women's Hall of Fame and The United States Congress for their dedicated, cutting-edge work empowering young girls. Jennifer Baumgardner is the executive director of The Feminist Press at CUNY as well as an author, activist, and filmmaker."-- Provided by publisher.
