They Serve Us

Secondly, I came across The Good Body, a play by Eve Ensler about her own hatred towards her stomach. I was touched by a conversation she had with an African girl. The girl, bewildered by Eve’s insecurities, says poignantly, “In America, your bodies are just pictures to you. Here, we live in our bodies, they serve us, they do our work.”
