Human rights champion and iconic author of the "Vagina Monologues," Eve Ensler, made her first on-screen appearance on PBS’s Tavis Smiley last week since her successful battle with cancer. Ensler, who is a symbol of hope and empowerment for women worldwide, spoke of her long-standing work to cast a spotlight on the brutal impact of war and sexual violence on the women and girls of eastern Congo.
"Eve continues to educate and inspire people throughout the U.S. and around the world through her work and her words," said Enough Co-founder John Prendergast. "Her commitment to the Congolese people simply knows no bounds. The City of Joy is a manifestation of that boundless support, and it no doubt will change countless lives."
This interview took place shortly after Ensler’s return from Bukavu, South Kivu where she commemorated the opening of the City of Joy, a safe haven for survivors of sexual violence who are seeking to reclaim their place in their communities, as well as a place for leaders and peace builders to congregate.
