Goal: To raise awareness to stop violence against women and girls and funds for local charities devoted to preventing violence against women and girls

What is V-Day? V-Day is a global movement to end violence against women and girls that raises funds and awareness through benefit productions of Playwright/Founder Eve Ensler’s award-winning play The Vagina Monologues.  In 2006, more than 2700 V-Day events in 1150 communities and colleges took place in the U.S. and around the world.  To date, V-Day has raised over $40 million and educated millions about the issue of violence against women and the efforts to end it, crafted international educational media and PSA campaigns, launched the Karama program in the Middle East, funded over 5000 community-based anti-violence programs, reopened shelters, and funded safe houses in Kenya, South Dakota, Egypt and Iraq.  

The 'V' in V-Day stands for Victory, Valentine and Vagina. www.vday.org.

What is the Worldwide Campaign? The V-Day Worldwide Campaign is a catalyst for mobilizing communities to heighten awareness to stop violence against women and girls. Local V-Day organizers around the world use both art and activism to shift traditional attitudes towards women and violence.
Through benefit performances of The Vagina Monologues  that take place between Valentine
’s Day (February 14) and International Women’s Day (March 8), a V-Day event provides a way for diverse, local women, activists and actors to collaborate and express universal ideas and emotions regarding violence against women in their own unique way, tailored to their individual experiences and their specific audiences. The proceeds from these events are donated directly to local organizations in the community that are working to stop this violence.
