Fighting For Sexual Freedom

Fighting for Sexual Freedom

I read an article a few weeks ago in the New York Times that has really stayed with me. It is about Eve Ensler’s center for female leadership  in the Congo, called City of Joy. I first heard about playwright Eve Ensler, when I read her most well-known  play the Vagina Monologues. This is a powerful   piece of writing  that changed the way many women view their anatomy.  Ensler has continued to inspire and educate women through her  advocacy group V-Day.

She recently opened a center in Bukavu in the Congo to educate and empower women and to stop the wide spread sexual violence that has ravaged that country.  I found this article very inspiring and I think you will too.

I have always been passionate about women’s sexual health and at the Center we are committed to helping women lead sexually fulfulling lives.  I would also recommend Eve Ensler’s book The Vagina Monologues. It is a quick, fun read. Enjoy!
