V-Day is an organized response against violence toward women.
V-Day is a vision: We see a world where women live safely and freely.
V-Day is a demand: Rape, incest, battery, genital mutilation and sexual slavery must end now.
V-Day is a spirit: We believe women should spend their lives creating and thriving rather than surviving or recovering from terrible atrocities.
V-Day is a catalyst: By raising money and consciousness, it will unify and strengthen existing anti-violence efforts. Triggering far-reaching awareness, it will lay the groundwork for new educational, protective, and legislative endeavors throughout the world.
V-Day is a process: We will work as long as it takes. We will not stop until the violence stops.
V-Day is a day. We proclaim Valentine's Day as V-Day, to celebrate women and end the violence.
V-Day is a fierce, wild, unstoppable movement and community. Join us!
What we do
Support local activists in producing benefit performances of Eve Ensler's award winning play The Vagina Monologues and other creative vehicles, the proceeds of which are invested in local anti-violence activities.
Encourage V-Day performances around the world to Spotlight and raise awareness for especially egregious situations of abuse against women in order to focus global attention on places often forgotten by the mainstream media.
Direct a portion of the proceeds from local V-Day performances around the world to support existing groups and create new local groups that will continue the anti-violence work for years to come.
