V-Day is a global movement to stop violence against women and girls. V-Day is a catalyst that promotes creative events to increase awareness, raise money, and revitalize the spirit of existing anti-violence organizations. V-Day generates broader attention for the fight to stop worldwide violence against women and girls including rape, battery, incest, female genital mutilation (FGM), and sexual slavery.
V-Day stages large-scale benefits and produces innovative gatherings, films, and programs (such as the upcoming 2004 documentary “Until The Violence Stops; community briefings with Amnesty International on the missing and murdered women of Juarez, Mexico; The December 2002 V-Day delegation trip to Israel, Palestine, Egypt and Jordan; The Afghan Women’s Summit; The Stop Rape Contest; and The Indian Country Project) to educate and change social attitudes towards violence against women.
Through V-Day campaigns, local volunteers and college students produce annual benefit performances of “The Vagina Monologues” to raise awareness and funds for anti-violence groups within their own communities. In 2003, over 1,000 V-Day benefit events were presented by volunteer activists around the world, educating millions of people about the reality of violence against women and girls and raising $4 million.
The V-Day movement is growing at a rapid pace throughout the world. V-Day, a non-profit corporation, distributes funds to grassroots, national, and international organizations and programs that work to stop violence against women and girls. In its first year of incorporation (2001), V-Day was named one of Worth Magazine’s “100 Best Charities.” In its first six years, the V-Day movement has raised over $20 million.
The ‘V’ in V-Day stands for Victory, Valentine and Vagina.
