Eve Ensler is a Tony Award-winning playwright, performer, feminist and activist, best known for her groundbreaking play The Vagina Monologues which The New York Times' critic Charles Isherwood described as “probably the most important piece of political theater of the last decade.”

Anne Lamott, bestselling author of Small Victories, Hallelujah Anyway, Operating Instructions and Traveling Mercies, writes and speaks about subjects that begin with capital letters: Alcoholism, Motherhood, Jesus.

Both women are fearless warriors and literary pioneers who have bared their souls and brought issues out into the open that, if discussed at all, were formerly only discussed in whispers behind closed doors and never in mixed company. Among the topics they have liberated are sex, religion, alcoholism, violence against women, orgasms, motherhood, lesbianism, cancer, genital mutilation, social and political injustice and death. They address these issues with compassion, pathos and humor to help bring the people of the world—both male and female, young and old, rich and poor—a little bit closer together.
