Yoni Ki Baat 2005 Call for Submissions!


Yoni Ki Baat Call for Submissions

We cannot put together a new show unless we have your submissions.
Don't be afraid -- just WRITE!


Yoni Ki Baat 2005

Vagina Talks, presented by
South Asian Sisters

That's right -- "Yoni ki Baat" is back for its third yoni-riffic year! We have confirmed that South Asian women are ready speak out about their bodies, their sexualities, and, yes, their yonis (yoni= vagina in Sanskrit)! This is an open call for our sisters to get creative and share any stories about their yonis, including topics such as, but not limited to:

* motherhood
* birth
* culture
* abuse
* menstruation
* smell
* hair
* genital mutilation
* orgasm
* pleasure
* masturbation
* sexual orientation
* rewriting stories
* reclaiming language (cunt, bitch, etc.)

Or, if you're stuck on what to write about, we've got some questions for you:

* What does your yoni enjoy most about being a south asian woman?
* How do you relate to women in our community?
* What is the most frustrating issue in south asian culture facing women today?
* Which Bollywood heroine/ hero does your yoni pine for or aspire to be?
* What language does your yoni speak?
* What Bollywood film would your yoni star in?
* What Bollywood song would your yoni sing?
* What is your yoni's bio-data/ matrimonial?
* What name does your yoni prefer to be called by?
* What is the immigration status of your yoni?
* What is your yoni's weapon?
* What does your yoni smell like?
* If your yoni could run for president, what would be the first item
on her agenda?
* If your yoni could say two words, what would they be?

Submissions will remain anonymous upon request and may be incorporated into our upcoming "Yoni Ki Baat" show in the Bay Area.

Please send any ideas, answers, poems, essays, stories, or musings -- we can't do the show unless we have your contributions! Your contributions create the mood and experience of the show, please share your voices with us!

Be on the lookout for more information about "Yoni Ki Baat" in the coming weeks.
