Author Spotlight: Eve Ensler

Today we celebrate body activist and female advocate extraordinaire, Eve Ensler.

Eve Ensler is an internationally bestselling author and an award-winning playwright whose works include THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES, THE GOOD BODY, INSECURE AT LAST, and I AM AN EMOTIONAL CREATURE, since adapted for the stage as Emotional Creature. She is the founder of V-Day, the global movement to end violence against women and girls, which has raised more than $90 million for local groups and activists, and inspired the global action One Billion Rising.

Like millions of women, Eve Ensler has been waiting much of her lifetime for an apology. Sexually and physically abused by her father, Eve has struggled her whole life from this betrayal, longing for an honest reckoning from a man who is long dead. After years of work as an anti-violence activist, she decided she would wait no longer; an apology could be imagined, by her, for her, to her. THE APOLOGY, written by Eve from her father’s point of view in the words she longed to hear, attempts to transform the abuse she suffered with unflinching truthfulness, compassion, and an expansive vision for the future.
