Audible Editor Reviews

According to on-air journalist Leonard Lopate, moderator of this forum on political expression, "[America] was born of protest". In this audiobook, originally recorded at New York’s 92nd Street Y forum, Lopate engages with two women who have made public, political protest a driving force of their lives.

Cindy Sheehan became a peace activist when she lost her son to the Iraq War. Eve Ensler became an activist long after she was raped and beaten in her childhood. Among Ensler’s many accomplishments is the writing of the 1996 smash hit, The Vagina Monologues, which makes women’s bodies the subject of lively scrutiny and celebration. Protestors of every stripe can learn something of the personal and social application of dissent.
