This weekend saw something revolutionary — not just in Egypt, but in Congo. The V-Day foundation, led by playwright and GRITtv guest Eve Ensler, opened its first City of Joy, a compound that will help Congolese women, many of them rape survivors, heal and learn, as V-Day puts it, to “turn their pain to power.”

The compound cost around $1 million, and hopes to graduate 180 women per year. Ensler told the New York Times, “You build an army of women,” and they take power for themselves. Distributed by Tubemogul.
