This is cruel of me I know

But is this really going to help all that much?

And Eve Ensler, author of “The Vagina Monologues,” is working with Unicef to build a City of Joy here to train women — some of them shattered by war — to transform their communities. City of Joy will teach legal rights, self-defense and skills for economic empowerment, and a team of female construction workers is helping build it right now.

Economic empowerment where there is no economy? Legal rights where there is no law?

    This isn’t going to help them at all. But that isn’t the point anyway. This is Ensler’s way of using suffering humanity as theatrical props, to make herself look heroically compassionate.
