 Eve Ensler Biography

Eve Ensler is a Tony Award-winning playwright, performer, feminist, and activist. She is best known for her play "The Vagina Monologues," which has been translated into over 48 languages and performed in over 140 countries. In 2006, Charles Isherwood of The New York Times called "The Vagina Monologues" "probably the most important piece of political theater of the last decade."

In 2004, Ensler performed her play "The Good Body" on Broadway, followed by a 20-city national tour. "Emotional Creature" ran in Johannesburg, Cape Town, Paris, Berkeley and New York throughout 2011. In 2015, "O.P.C." had its world premiere at the American Repertory Theater and in 2016, "Avocado" debuted at the West Yorkshire Playhouse and became part of "The Fruit Trilogy," which had a run at the West Yorkshire Playhouse.

In 2016, Eve adapted and premiered her 2013 memoir "In the Body of the World," for the stage, performing the adaptation at the American Repertory Theater. In January 2018, Eve performed the play at the Manhattan Theatre Club in New York City.

Eve’s other plays include "The Treatment," "Necessary Targets," "Ladies," "Lemonade," "Extraordinary Measures," "Mango," and "Here," which was filmed live by Sky Television in London in the summer of 2010.

Ensler released "Insecure at Last," a political memoir in 2006 and co-edited "A Memory, a Monologue, a Rant, and a Prayer," an anthology of writings about violence against women published in 2007. In 2010, "I Am an Emotional Creature: The Secret Life of Girls Around the World" was released by Random House and made The New York Times Best Seller list.

Ensler’s film credits include an HBO film version of her performance of The Vagina Monologues (2002). She also produced the film What I Want My Words to Do to You, a documentary about the writing group she led at the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility for Women. What I Want My Words to Do to You won the Freedom of Expression Award at the Sundance Film Festival and premiered nationally on PBS’s “P.O.V.” in December 2003.

Ensler has written numerous articles for The Guardian, Huffington Post, International Herald Tribune, Elle France, La Republica, and Time Magazine.

She was awarded the 2011 Isabelle Stevenson Tony Award. Other awards include a Guggenheim Fellowship in Playwriting, an Obie, and Glamour’s Woman of the Year in addition to many honorary degrees.

In November 2009, Ensler was named one of US News & World Report’s ”Best Leaders” in association with the Center for Public Leadership (CPL) at Harvard Kennedy School. In 2010, she was named one of “125 Women Who Changed Our World” by Good Housekeeping Magazine. In 2011, she was named one of Newsweek’s “150 Women Who Changed the World” and The Guardian’s “100 Most Influential Women.” Ms. Ensler was the recipient of the Lucille Lortel 2018 Lifetime Achievement Award and a 2018 Lily Award.

Ensler’s experience performing "The Vagina Monologues" inspired her to create V-Day, a global activist movement to stop violence against women and girls. She has devoted her life to stopping violence, envisioning a planet in which women and girls will be free to thrive, rather than merely survive.

Today, V-Day raises funds and awareness through benefit productions of Ensler’s award-winning play "The Vagina Monologues" and other artistic works. To date, the V-Day movement has raised over $100 million; educated millions about the issue of violence against women and the efforts to end it; crafted international educational, media, and PSA campaigns; reopened shelters; and funded over 13,000 community-based anti-violence programs and safe houses in Afghanistan, Democratic Republic of Congo, Kenya, Indian Country, and Iraq.

In 2012, Eve initiated the campaign ONE BILLION RISING, the largest mass action campaign against violence against women and girls.
