NEW: Eve Ensler featured in the International Herald Tribune & The Guardian
Eve Ensler recently took part in the International Herald Tribune's "Turning Points: Global Agenda 2012" series, joining Ai Weiwei, Christiane Amanpour, Christopher Buckley, Paul Farmer, Michael Ignatieff, and Vitaly Komar for the "Big Question" feature which asked: Do the lives of Gandhi, Solzhenitsyn and Mandela tell us more about the future than those of Stalin, Hitler and Mao?
READ Eve's response re: Passion Versus Politics >
In addition, Eve sat down with The Guardian to talk about the City of Joy in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and discuss what drives the global feminist movement, and why more men should have gender equality at the forefront of their minds.

TAKE ACTION: Support The Violence Against Women Act
On November 30th, nearly 20 years after the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) was first signed into law, U.S. Senators Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) and Mike Crapo (R-Idaho) introduced legislation (S.1925) to further strengthen and improve the programs authorized under the landmark law to assist survivors of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking.
This is an important step forward for VAWA and we hope to get even more improvements as the bill moves forward!
What's most important now is to get ALL legislators to support VAWA's reauthorization! The National Center on Domestic and Sexual Violence has put together a great TOOL KIT that features talking points, sample letters, and detailed information about VAWA to help you TAKE ACTION to help get VAWA reauthorized!
