Book Description:
Playwright, author, and activist Eve Ensler has devoted her life to the female body—how totalk about it, how to protect and value it. Yet she spent much of her lifedisassociated from her own body—a disconnection brought on by her father's sexual abuse and her mother's remoteness. ";Because I did not, couldnot inhabit my body or the Earth," she writes, "I could not feel or know their pain." But Ensler is shocked out of her distance. While working inthe Congo, she is shattered to encounter the horrific rape and violence inflicted on the women there. Soon after, she is diagnosed with uterine cancer, and through months of harrowing treatment, she is forced to become firstand foremost a body—pricked, punctured, cut, scanned. It is then that all distance is erased. As she connects her own illness to the devastation of the earth, her life force to the resilience of humanity, she is finally, fully—and gratefully—joined to the body of the world. Unflinching, generous, and inspiring, Ensler calls on us all to embody our connection to and responsibility for the world.
