The Secret Life of Girls Around the World
In August of 2010, I Am An Emotional Creature was first workshopped at New York Stage and Film at Vassar College. This show was recently workshopped in Johannesburg, South Africa, and Paris, France, and opened at Berkeley Rep in June 2012, moving towards an off-Broadway production. ISBN 9780812970166.
Eve Ensler, a playwright and activist, is the founder of V-Day, a global movement to end violence against women and girls. In conjunction with I AM AN EMOTIONAL CREATURE, V-Day has developed a targeted pilot program, V-Girls, to engage young women in our “empowerment philanthropy” model, providing them with a platform to amplify their voices.
Eve is also the author of The Vagina Monologues, which has been translated into over 48 languages, performed in over 140 countries, including Off-Broadway and on London’s West End, and has run for 10 years in Mexico City and Paris. Her experience performing The Vagina Monologues inspired her to create V-Day. 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.
Today, V-Day is a global activist movement that has raised $85 million and awareness through benefit productions of The Vagina Monologues and other artistic works, and has educated millions about the issue of violence against women and the efforts to end it.
