"Like a woman claiming her body, a girl claiming her emotions breaks a silence and unleashes a vast resource of clean energy, an energy that can inspire all of us to transform and heal the world." - Carol Gilligan
"Women have entrusted Eve with their most intimate experiences, from sex to birthing. I think readers, men as well as women, will emerge from these pages feeling more free within themselves- and about each other." - Gloria Steinem
"In the current era, it takes some brain racking to think of anyone else doing anything quite like Ensler. She a counter-cultural consciousness-raiser, an empowering figure,
a truth-teller." - Chicago Tribune
"Nobody brings sharp, witty, knowing voice to the plight of women in our country and around the world like Ensler." - Marie Claire
