Like millions of women, Eve Ensler has been waiting much of her life for an apology. Sexually and physically abused by her father, Eve has struggled her whole life from this betrayal, longing for an honest reckoning from a man who is long dead. After years of work as an anti-violence activist, she decided she would wait no longer; an apology could be imagined, by her, for her, to her. ‘The Apology’, written by Eve from her father’s point of view in the words she longed to hear, attempts to transform the abuse she suffered with unflinching truthfulness, compassion, and an expansive vision for the future. She has set out to provide a new way for herself and a possible road for others, so that survivors of abuse may finally envision how to be free. Remarkable and original, ‘The Apology’ is an acutely transformational look at how, from the wounds of sexual abuse, we can begin to re-emerge and heal.
