Eve Ensler

In the Body of the World

The Swedish Museum, 5211 N. Clark St.,
Chicago

While working in the Congo, Eve is shattered by the horrific rape and violence inflicted on the women there. Soon after, she is diagnosed with uterine cancer, and during months of harrowing treatment she is forced to become first and foremost a body—pricked, punctured, cut, scanned. As she connects her own illness to other forms of devastation she has witnessed—of the Earth and other women—she is finally, fully, and gratefully, joined to the body of the world. Unflinching, generous, and inspiring, In the Body of the World is a transformative work that calls on us all to embody our connection to and responsibility for the world. Eve Ensler is an internationally bestselling author and an award-winning playwright whose works include The Vagina Monologues and I Am an Emotional Creature. She is the founder of V-Day, the global movement to end violence against women and girls. Seating is limited, and tickets are required. Purchase of the book (either online or by calling 773-769-9299) from Women & Children First comes with a ticket to the event.
