“I'm flattered that you're all so interested in my vagina, but no means no." That's what Michigan State Representative Lisa Brown told her fellow lawmakers on the floor of the State House during a debate on abortion rights. Use of the "V word" apparently made a few nervous enough to ban Ms. Brown from speaking on on the floor of the house.
In response, at least nine female legislators will join actresses from around Michigan to read the play "The Vagina Monologues" on the steps of the Michigan Capitol building tonight. Gretchen Whitmer, Michigan Senate Democratic Leader, will be one of these readers.
