musings of a subway performer and lifelong troubadour

Eve Ensler, one woman's dream now a world cause reality

Added on by NYC Subway Girl.

Eve is one of the most remarkable leaders of our time. A provocative playwright, an intensely adept voice, and a tireless presence wherever violence against women is unveiled.  In bringing atrocities to light, she is a fearless seeker of truth. From villages in Africa, campus’s in America, to congressional hearings, her focus is fierce. Her words strong, her action deeply committed. Eve’s campaign of non-violence throughout the world, is essential and worth our support.  V-Day is run by a very small group of people committed to ending violence against women. Their efforts are funded through people like you and me. 

Congratulations Eve!!
