Since this is a classic, I'm not going to bother to actually review it. Here are the page numbers for all the monologues for a young woman (though there may be more that I just didn't find): 140, 151-153.

There are also a lot of good monologues for men and possibly some for an older woman, but I wasn't looking for those.

One frustrating thing about this play is that in much of the second act dialects are written out. This makes it a bit frustrating to read because you practically have to translate it. If you are reading this and you are a playwright, say what dialect you want in the character description and spell all the lines normally. Your actors will thank you.
