The book, and by implication the V-Day Movement, place particular emphasis on ways and efforts to explore and define the circumstances of non-Caucasian and non-Western women. Japanese comfort women, Native American women, African women, Arab women, transgendered women - all receive attention, in the form of specifically tailored monologues, in an effort to include their specific ethno-cultural circumstances in the more general portrayal of the circumstances faced by women in contemporary society.
