Eve Ensler made the language of female anatomy an open book in “The Vagina Monologues.”
A decade and more on, her one-woman play has morphed into a rallying point against victimization of women worldwide.
Now, Ensler is turning her attention to girls. In her new book, “I Am an Emotional Creature: The Secret Life of Girls Around the World,” she animates stories of girls abused, trafficked, mutilated, locked up in Facebook and lost.
And she champions girl power — which could and should, she says, save the world.
