Thandie delivers a powerful reading of Ensler’s City of Joy letter


Thandie Newton joined Eve Ensler and other V-Day board members  at The Paley Center for Media in New York today for “The Story of Women Turning Pain to Power to Planting,” a special V-Day event. This project is related to the City Of Joy, a community started in Bukavu, Democratic Republic of Congo to help female survivors of gender violence. The project strives to teach survivors about agriculture and farming.

Thandie delivered an emotional and powerful reading of a letter written by Ensler during her time in Bukavu. Livestream captured the entire event and Thandie’s speech starts approximately 5:40minutes into the event.

You can find out more about the project on the V-Day website.
