Stage and screen star Rosario Dawson will direct a benefit reading of Eve Ensler's newest work, I Am an Emotional Creature: The Secret Life of Girls Around the World, at Urban Zen Center at Stephan Weiss Studio, on Friday, February 5 at 7:30pm.

The piece chronicles the struggle of girls everywhere to overcome the obstacles, threats, and pressures that rob them of their originality and power. The readings will be performed by teen girls, including Samantha Mozes and girls from V-Girls pilot sites in New York City - the Harvey Milk High School at the Hetrick Martin Institute, the Young Women's Leadership School, and the Lower East Side Girls Club.

Proceeds will benefit V-Day's work with women and girls worldwide. Tickets are $100 for general seating with packages at $1000 - $5000, which will include an intimate cocktail reception immediately after the reading.
