A Memory, A Monologue, A Rant, and A Prayer

A Memory, A Monologue, A Rant, and A Prayer is an incredible collection of stories that bring forth issues of violence against women and girls are funny, heartfelt, angry, tragic, beautiful and inspiring. Eve Ensler, author of The Vagina Monologues, edited MMRP, which features pieces from "Until the Violence Stops" which is an international tour that brings the issue of violence against women to the forefront of our consciousness.

Stories of self-mutilation, being a single mother, women's work, S&M, domestic abuse, and bras are told by women and men who's voices can and will no longer be silent. This is the second year MMRP has been performed at Texas Tech. Last year I had the privilege of participating in the event. This year I was privileged with the opportunity to photograph it.

"In the current era, it takes some brain racking to think of anyone else doing anything quite like Esler. She's a counter-cultural consciousness-raiser, an empowering figure, a truth-teller."
