SLUT

A Play and Guidebook for Combating Sexism and Sexual Violence
Katie Cappiello & Meg McInerney

Introduction by Jennifer Baumgardner. Afterword by Carol Gilligan.

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 Rachel Simmons of the Girls Leadership Institute, among others, providing the resources to inspire change within our communities and ourselves.

"SLUT is truthful, raw and immediate! Experience this play and witness what American young women live with everyday."

--Gloria Steinem

SLUT resonates to the core. It’s a call to arms, a wake up call. It’s harrowing and terrifying but also steadying and inspiring. It reminds us that we have work to do.”

—Elizabeth Cuthrell, founder of Evenstar Films, producer of Jesus’ Son and Meek’s Cutoff

"Katie Cappiello’s powerhouse script examines the double standard that celebrates sexual activity by boys but denigrates it for girls."

—Valerie David, Time Out New York

SLUT is … [a] breathtakingly brave, honest and brutal look at the reality of violence against women.”

—Kathy Najimy, actress and activist, Ms. Magazine’s 2005 Woman of the Year
