Best-selling author and acclaimed playwright Eve Ensler (The Vagina Monologues and The Good Body) was at the 92nd Street Y on Feb 23 of this year. She is the founder of V-Day, the global movement to end violence against women and girls, which has raised more than $70 million. Her most recent book, I Am an Emotional Creature: The Secret Life of Girls Around the World, is a series of original monologues that aims to inspire girls to take agency over their minds, bodies, hearts and curiosity.
In the highlights above, Eve reads from her book, I Am an Emotional Creature. She also talks about her very first nervous meeting with Beyonce while they were guests on the The Tyra Show, being too emotional, and her presentation at the TED conference on honoring your inner girl.
You might recall that Eve was here last year as well, in Feb of 2009. At that time she read a powerful monologue, “Teenage Girls Guide to Surviving Sex Slavery,” an excerpt from I Am an Emotional Creature: The Secret Life of Girls Around the World which at that time was not yet published.
