Eve Ensler – Tony Award winning playwright, performer, and activist, is the author of The Vagina Monologues, which has been translated into over 48 languages, performed in over 140 countries, including sold-out runs at both Off-Broadway’s Westside Theater and on London’s West End (2002 Olivier Award nomination, Best Entertainment), and run for 10 years in Mexico City and Paris. The Vagina Monologues inspired Eve to launch V-Day, a global grassroots activist movement to stop violence against women and girls which raises funds and awareness through benefit productions of her award-winning play The Vagina Monologues and other artistic works. To date, the V-Day movement has raised over $100 million and educated millions. Eve Ensler has devoted her life to stopping violence, envisioning a planet in which women and girls will be free to thrive, rather than merely survive. Ms. Ensler is also the author of the non fiction book I Am an Emotional Creature: The Secret Life of Girls around the World, which was a New York Times bestseller, as well as the political memoir Insecure at Last. Ms. Ensler co-edited A Memory, a Monologue, a Rant, and a Prayer, an anthology of writings about violence against women. Her latest book, In the Body of the World is a brave and beautiful examination of an illness, unlike anything ever written about cancer. In 2011 she was named one of Newsweek’s “150 Women Who Changed the World” and The Guardian’s “100 Most Influential Women.”
