The Vagina Monologues
V-Day is a global activist movement to end violence against women. Over the past 18 years, V-Day activists from more than 140 countries have worked tirelessly on a grassroots level to demand an end to all forms of violence against women and girls. In the face of resistance, and at the intersection of art and activism, they have come together around life-saving safe houses, productions of award winning playwright Eve Ensler’s The Vagina Monologues and other works curated by V-Day. V-Day organizers have saved lives, raised consciousness, changed laws to protect women and girls, funded rape crisis centers and domestic violence shelters (often times these much needed funds kept them from closing), educated their communities, and raised over $100 million in urgently needed funds for groups doing the essential work of ending violence and serving survivors and their families.
V-Day’s work is grounded in 4 core beliefs: Art has the power to transform thinking and inspire people to act; lasting social and cultural change is spread by ordinary people doing extraordinary things; local women best know their communities need and can become unstoppable leaders; one must look at the intersection of race, class, and gender to understand violence against women.
V-Day’s global campaign, One Billion Rising, has galvanized over one billion women and men on a global day of action towards ending violence against women and girls. ONE BILLION RISING: 1 in 3 women across the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime. One Billion Rising is the biggest mass action to end violence against women in human history. This year we are rising for Revolution to change the paradigm, demand accountability, justice and systematic CHANGE. We invite you to join us.
V-Day has received numerous acknowledgements and awards and is, one of the Top Rated organizations on both Charity Navigator and Guidestar.
