Product Description

Eve Ensler is an internationally bestselling author and an award-winning playwright whose theatrical works include The Vagina Monologues, Necessary Targets and The Good Body. She is the author of Insecure at Last, a political memoir, and I Am an Emotional Creature, a New York Times bestseller, which she has since adapted for the stage as Emotional Creature. Ensler is the founder of V-Day, the global movement to end violence against women and girls, which has raised over $90 million for local groups and activists and inspired the global action "One Billion Rising." Eve Ensler lives in the world.

Playwright, author and activist Eve Ensler has devoted her life to the female body‰ÛÓhow to talk about it, how to protect and value it. Yet she spent much of her life disassociated from her own body‰ÛÓa disconnection brought on by her father‰۪s sexual abuse and her mother‰۪s remoteness. ‰ÛÏBecause I did not, could not, inhabit my body or the Earth,‰۝ she writes, ‰ÛÏI could not feel or know their pain.‰۝

But Ensler is shocked out of her distance. While working in the Congo, she is shattered to encounter the horrific rape and violence inflicted on the women there. Soon after, she is diagnosed with uterine cancer and, through months of harrowing treatment, she is forced to become first and foremost a body‰ÛÓpricked, punctured, cut, scanned. It is then that all distance is erased. As she connects her own illness to the devastation of the Earth, her life force to the resilience of humanity, she is finally, fully‰ÛÓand gratefully‰ÛÓjoined to the body of the world.

Unflinching, generous and inspiring, Ensler calls on us all to embody our connection to and responsibility for the world.
