In this episode, Laura interviews world-renowned playwright Eve Ensler and singer/songwriter Taína Asili about One Billion Rising 2020, a global movement to stop gender-based violence against women and girls by organizing public demonstrations rooted in music and dance. They discuss the role that joyous public movement and song can and must play in soothing trauma, raising awareness, and building solidarity among women across the world.
“Dance is a form of expression, and so they’re managing to do huge demonstrations with dance where they’re bringing all kinds of people into the movement, because dance is so incredible. It breaks down binaries. It invites us all into the equation.”
- Taína Asili, singer/songwriter
- Eve Ensler, Playwright and activist
