"V-Day," a global movement and grassroots campaign to end violence against women, came to the Tri-state Wednesday to talk about ending violence -- and to inspire women to exercise their right to vote this November.
Eve Ensler, founder of V-Day and playwright of the "Vagina Monologues" spoke at the Rape Criss and Abuse Center Wednesday morning.
"This probably will be the most important election of our lifetimes," said Ensler. "Certainly of my lifetime."
"There are 50 million un-registered voters, 22 million single women who are not registered to vote -- and your vote could make the difference between a safe world and a not safe world," said Ensler.
The Rape Crisis Center, the YWCA and V-Day do not support any one political party.
The V-Day campaign will also be taken to other states, including Florida and Colorado.
