Today, I Am An Emotional Creature

Today sees the release of (Vagina Monologues writer and V-Day founder) Eve Ensler’s new book I Am An Emotional Creature; the secret life of girls around the world. I absolutely love the powerful work that Ensler does, whether it’s her feminist writings and performances or her activism and charity work, so I’m excitedly anticipating this new collection of monologues that ‘aims to inspire girls to take agency over their minds, bodies, hearts and curiosities’.

Whilst I eagerly await my pre-ordered copy to fall through the letterbox, I’ll leave you with this video of Ensler talking at TED about how we all need to embrace our ‘inner girl’. She finishes the lecture by reciting the monologue that gave the book its name…

Vaginal Volunteering..

Happy New Year everyone! I do hope you all saw 2010 in in style. For me, one of the most exciting things about New Years (besides breaking my resolutions, that is) is the return of Eve Ensler’s fab play The Vagina Monologues, just in time for Valentines. Well, what else am I gonna be doing on that day?
