''mj,-jtfli,li.iir.ia ' THURS 105 Eve Ensler (above) impressed critics, wowed audiences, and inspired women when she asked them to talk about their vaginas. Now, years after "The Vagina Monologues" made her famous, Ensler is talking to women again, this time about freedom and security. In "Insecure at Last," Ensler's first work exclusively for the printed page, she interviews women in Afghanistan, female prisoners in America, Katrina survivors, and antiwar activist Cindy Sheehan. Drawing on those conversations and her own experiences, Ensler expresses her views on living in a post-9 1 1 world. MON 109 COLUMBUS DAY OPEN HOUSE The Rembrandts, Van Goghs, and mummies are reason enough to visit the MFA. Performances, activities, and demonstrations celebrating South Asian culture make it even more enticing.
