RELEASED: French Translation of I Am An Emotional Creature - Features in Le Monde, Elle, Paris Match and more!
In September, V-Day and MCR Productions brought V-Girls to France for the very first time through curated workshop productions of Emotional Creature at Ciné 13 Théâtre. The sold-out performances were hugely successful and paved the way for the launch of the French translation of Eve Ensler's bestselling book I Am An Emotional Creature: The Secret Life Of Girls Around The World, on November 3rd.
Since its release, the book has been met with rave reviews and has garnered local and international press in publications such as Le Monde des Livres, Elle, Paris Match, Livres Hebdo and many more. To bring further attention to the issues addressed in the book, Eve embarked on a multi-city tour of France - making stops in Montpellier, Toulouse, Strausborg, and Paris - to meet with girls and boys, mothers and fathers in the Lycées, book shops, theaters, and town halls to speak out about the issues confronting girls in France. A big thank you to the wonderful people at Editions 10-18 who published the book, organized the tour and worked so hard to get the V-Girls message out.
Over a month after it's release in France, I Am An Emotional Creature: The Secret Life Of Girls Around The World continues to bring international attention not only to the issues facing girls around the world, but to the V-Girls movement - a global network of girl activists empowering themselves and one another to change the world, one girl at a time.
