The Boise Peace Quilt Project has created a lush patchwork quilt of velvets and silks to honor Eve Ensler’s heroic efforts to stop violence against women and girls.
Eve Ensler Peace Quilt Award
Presented during a private gathering after A.C.T.'s performance of "The Good Body"
Saturday, July 24 - Geary Theater in San Francisco
BOISE – Boiseans Syrena Case Hargrove, Joanna Madden Ashmore, Laurel Defoggi, Karen Falvey, Christina Rosendaul, and Lyn Winer will present the quilt award to Ms Ensler.
American Contemporary Theater (A.C.T.) explains the production this way:
“Whether undergoing Botox or living under burkhas, women of all cultures and backgrounds feel compelled to change the way they look in order to fit in with their particular culture, in order to be accepted, in order to be good. In The Good Body, Ensler explores their experiences with monologues representing women from Bombay to Beverly Hills.”
Since December 1981, Boise Peace Quilters have been making “Peace Quilt Awards” for organizations and individuals doing significant humanitarian work. To learn more, visit: http://www.boisepeacequilt.org
