The purpose of our blog is to discuss topical issues, stories, and situations, as well as to share what we are up to and new ways for you to get involved. We are always searching for possible answers to the question: Why is a girl's worth culturally and historically relative?

A Girl is an Emotional Creature

Eve Ensler, CNN-IBN.
Exciting news from the world of West Coast theatre! Eve Ensler’s new play 'Emotional Creature' will open at Berkeley Rep on June 15 and run for a month. The script, monologues and songs for and about girls, is based on her very cool book, I Am an Emotional Creature: The Secret Life of Girls Around the World. To read more a find out how to get tickets, check out this article in Playbill. 

While the Playbill article claims it will be a world premiere, an earlier version with the fuller title 'I Am an Emotional Creature' opened in Mumbai in November 2009 with an all Indian cast and directors. Here she is being interviewed on CNN-IBN.

If you have a spare 20 minutes or so, check out Ensler’s moving TED talk also given in India about her work, travelling and talking to girls, and ‘embracing your inner girl’. 

Girl Museum is looking forward to this play, which is sure to be creative and provocative. If you live in the SF/Berkeley area and would like to review this play for us- please drop me a line.

Check out Global Girl Media's interview with Ensler rehearsing her play in Johannesburg and the V-Girls inspired by the book.
