Eve Ensler is the activist, playwright, and author responsible for worldwide hit The Vagina Monologues as well as the New York Times best-selling book I Am an Emotional Creature, among others. A woman who has spent much of her life exploring and documenting the female body and the issues which surround it, Ensler’s memoir details her past with sexual abuse, her feelings of disassociation with her own body, and the terrible acts she witnessed while working in the Congo. She relates her struggle with illness and how it changed her perception of herself and her responsibility to the world, and uses her story to inspire change in others.
