Eve Ensler, creator of "The Vagina Monologues", works to end violence against women and girls around the world. In her TED Talk she declares that all of us, no matter gender or age, have girl cells. These cells offer us intuition, empathy, compassion, openness, reliability, intensity and vulnerability. That these cells are vital to the continued evolution of our species and the continuation of the human race. She tells stories about the resiliency of girls under horrific circumstances from around the world. She ends this TED talk with a very powerful monologue, "I am an Emotional Creature".
"The only way I have ever understood, broken free, emerged, healed, forgiven, flourished and grown powerful is by asking the hardest questions and then living into the answers through opening up to my own terror and transmuting it into creativity. I have gotten nowhere by retreating into hand-me-down sureties or resisting the tensions that truth ignited."
