If she hasn't been spayed, then the answers about her possibly going into heat might be right. Check the area gently yourself to see if there's any matted fur, any evidence of fleas, any irritated skin. Another possibility is that she's bored; animals can sometimes groom themselves excessively because they don't have anything better to do. Play with her and get her a few toys she can play with by herself when you're not there.

If she hasn't been spayed she may be starting her journey into Hell....aka her kitty period.

cats lick themselves all the time it's perfectly normal part of their grooming however as others have said she may need to be fixed or may have an infection get her to the vet if you can it's better safe than sorry

She might be in heat. They cant use pads and tampons like us so they lick it.
