V joins Laura Flanders discussing the effects of Disaster Patriarchy.
Candidate à la primaire écologiste en vue de la présidentielle française, Sandrine Rousseau ne compte pas jouer les figurantes. Pour booster une campagne en mal de visibilité, elle n’hésite pas à solliciter des soutiens internationaux. En exclusivité dans ELLE, Jane Fonda et Eve Ensler prennent publiquement la parole pour soutenir sa candidature.
“Disaster patriarchy: how the pandemic has unleashed a war on women.” That’s the headline of a new essay by V, the playwright and activist who was formerly known as Eve Ensler. She details how the pandemic has led to a surge in violence against women, as well as an economic and educational crisis, with tens of millions of women and girls out of work or school. UNESCO estimates 11 million girls may not return to school once the pandemic is over. Other estimates put the total as high as 20 million girls.
As Covid-19 has swept the world there has been an explosion of violence against women, and a full-blown assault on their rights. It’s time to fight back against a system that allows women to be sacrificed, erased and violated.

For 32 years, this conference has been the premier event to attend to access the latest trauma research and to discover effective interventions that are being practiced in clinics, schools, prisons, families, and communities around the world.
In this “Dangerous Women: Leading Onward” episode, V-Day Board member Pat Mitchell talks with V (formerly Eve Ensler) about what’s next as we come out of the pandemic.
Revolution of the Mother:
A dialogue with Eve Ensler (V) and Andrew Harvey
Patriarchy, capitalism, and racism are destroying the planet. We are in a hurricane of interlinked crises, a global dark night that threatens human extinction. A great force of radical regeneration—the force of the Divine Feminine—is arising to bring revelation, hope, joy, and fierce passion energy to the work of building a new world from the ashes of the old.
The time for aligning with this potentially all-transforming force in mind, soul, and body and in putting love into action is NOW.
During this session, join these two great soul friends and passionate devotees of the Mother for a thrilling dynamic and practical exploration and celebration of this all-important revolution in human consciousness.
V-Day, One Billion Rising and the CNAM “Humanities and Health” chair in partnership with Make.org, Aurore Association and Plateau Urbain present “Rencontres One Billion Rising – Les femmes sur le front du Covid : en première ligne face aux violences et à l’avant-garde des transformations” (One Billion Rising Meetings – Women on the frontlines of Covid: at the forefront of violence and of transformation), hosted by V (formerly Eve Ensler) and Cynthia Fleury. NOTE: This event will be entirely in French.
V (formerly Eve Ensler) and Andrew Harvey invite you to the greatest revolution of all, one that can birth a wholly new way of being and doing everything—and a new world for all sentient beings—the Revolution of the Mother.
