One Billion Rising: V-Day’s Eve Ensler Launches Global Day of Action, Dance Against Women’s Violence
Continued from previous page
AMY GOODMAN: Well, Eve Ensler, we want to thank you very much for being with us. I was very amused yesterday when you talked about your experience of being in airports, in wherever, and people coming up to you, and what they’ve said to you has changed.
EVE ENSLER: Yes, it has. The people used to come up to me and say, "Oh, my god! I’ve seen your play, The Vagina Monologues." Now they come up, and they say, "I’ve been in your play." I did the plot. It was wonderful. So I really kind of love the idea that eventually we’ll just have a collective performance of The Vagina Monologues up. I hope so.
AMY GOODMAN: Well, maybe that is February 14th, 2013.
EVE ENSLER: Indeed, the rising.
AMY GOODMAN: Eve Ensler, thanks so much for being with us. Eve Ensler, the award-winning playwright, creator of The Vagina Monologues and V-Day, the global movement to stop violence against women and girls. The new campaign is called One Billion Rising. You can go to vday.org.
