The C-Word Monologues (video)

Wisdom Quarterly; Eve Ensler (, Krista Tippett (, 11-14-13)

Buddhist Eve Ensler has helped women all over the world tell the stories of their lives through the stories of their bodies. Her play, The Vagina Monologues, has become a global force in the face of violence against women and girls. She herself also had a violent childhood. And it turns out that she herself was like so many of us Western women, obsessed with our bodies and yet not inhabiting them -- without even knowing we were not inhabiting them. Until she got a wake up call from that unspeakable C-word, cancer.
