By Michelle Malkin - September 17, Have you ever heard Hollywood liberals talk about suspected Islamic jihadists the way they talk about suspected Republican "book-banners"? The September 11 terrorist attacks didn't turn celebrity leftists into hawks.
As female college activist groups go, the Network of Enlightened Womenor NeW, is a very different breed. They don't distribute condoms on the Quad or march for a woman's right to choose. Instead, they bake chocolate chip cookies and protest campus productions of Eve Ensler's The Vagina Monologuesa controversial play about female sexuality that conservatives say degrades women and glorifies rape.
You have got to be kidding. D'Souza and his publisher have clearly embraced Ann Coulter's road-to-riches strategy: make the most outrageous attacks imaginable on your opponents and then ride your faux indignation at their response all the way to the bank.

As directed by Vicki Stroich, it mocks Oprah Winfrey's use of the term vajayjay to great comic effect but also seriously questions why society still remains uneasy about women's genitalia. Indeed, though Burns sarcastically wears her hair in Ensler's trademark pixie cut, she shares Ensler's goals for a kind of social enlightenment regarding the female anatomy.

Bucknam said it was an exciting surprise to get additional support from different academic departments for the play, set to take place in April, since it has faced oposition from Fordham as a Jesuit institution in the past. ISIS organizes the production, but the club is not publically affiliated with the show.
