About 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. 2008 marks V-Day’s 10-year anniversary and with it V-Day has introduced two new events, V-Day’s A Memory, A Monologue, A Rant and A Prayer: Writings on Violence Against Women and Girls, and the V-Day documentary Until The Violence Stops. In 2007, more than 3,000 V-Day events took place in the U.S. and around the world.  To date, the V-Day movement has raised more than $50 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, reopened shelters, and funded more than 5,000 community-based anti-violence programs and safe houses in South Dakota, Kenya, Egypt, and Iraq. The 'V' in V-Day stands for Victory, Valentine, and Vagina.  http://www.vday.org

What is a V-Day  Campaign?

A V-Day Campaign is a catalyst for mobilizing women and men to heighten awareness about violence against women and girls.  By creating this global community, V-Day strives to empower women to find their collective voices and demand an end to the violence that affects one in three women in the U.S. and around the world.
