Eve Ensler, best known for having written "The Vagina Monolgues," is seeking to put an end to the worst rape problem in the world— the Congo. Ensler deems the phenomenon "femicide": "'I have spent the past 10 years of my life in the rape mines of the world,' she said. 'But I have never seen anything like this.'" The playwright is helping to open a center at the heart of the problem that will provide counseling and support to thousands of rape victims.
