Through V-Day campaigns, local volunteers and college students produce annual benefit performances of The Vagina Monologues, A Memory, A Monologue, A Rant and A Prayer, and screenings of V-Day’s documentary Until The Violence Stops to raise awareness and funds for anti-violence groups within their own communities. 2009 V-Day events have the option to introduce a new V-Day theatrical event, Any One Of Us: Words From Prison, which reveals the connection between women in prison and the violence that often brings them there. This event will bring forth raw voices of fierceness and honesty written by women from prisons across the nation and performed by local women. In 2008, over 4000 V-Day benefit events took place produced by volunteer activists in the U.S. and around the world, educating millions of people about the reality of violence against women and girls.
V-Day works to end violence against girls and women by partnering directly with women’s organizations in Africa, Asia and the Middle East who are working to end violence against women and girls in all its forms—changing minds, changing laws, changing lives.
Stop Raping our Greatest Resource: Power to Women in the Democratic Republic of Congo is a new global campaign, initiated by V-Day and United NationsICEF, representing UN Action Against Sexual Violence in Conflict that that calls attention to the wide-scale atrocities committed against women and girls in Eastern DRC and demands an end to the impunity with which these crimes are committed.
