” … it is about that small but vital place where an organizing campaign or movement meets the public sphere.”Paul Kuttner, CulturalOrganizing.org
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.
