"In the current era, it takes some brain racking to think of anyone else doing anything quite like Ensler. She's a countercultural consciousness-raiser, and empowering figure, a truth teller." Chicago Tribune
"Spellbinding, funny, and almost unbearably moving... it is both a work of art and an incisive piece of cultural history, a poem and a polemic, a performance and a balm and a benediction." Variety
"Eve Ensler wants to save the world....and don't even think of getting in her way." New York Times Magazine
