“The case studies are a wonderful antidote to defeatism because as you read the examples – and recall your own successes – you know that you could do those actions, too.”Murray Dobbin, rabble.ca
Eve Ensler is a Tony Award-winning author, playwright and anti-violence feminist activist. She wrote The Vagina Monologues, a play inspired by conversations with friends and based on interviews with over 200 women about their experiences of sexuality. The play has been translated into over forty-eight languages and performed in 140 countries, and inspired Ensler to create V-Day, a global activist movement to end violence against women. V-Day educates and raises funds and public attention through media campaigns, annual gatherings and benefit productions of Eve’s plays. V-Day also built the City of Joy, a community for survivors of gender violence in Bukavo, Democratic Republic of Congo. Eve Ensler has written The Good Body, a play about obsession with women’s appearance, and I Am an Emotional Creature: The Secret Life of Girls Around The World, a collection of original monologues about and for girls. She writes regularly for Glamour Magazine, The Guardian, Marie Claire, Huffington Post, Washington Post, Utne Reader and O Magazine.
