Results of the Stop-Rape Contest
Results of the Stop Rape Contest, a joint V-Day and Equality Now project, will be made available on the V-Day website in early February. The deadline for the contest is December 31, 2000. The contest will be judged by a team of twelve regional coordinators - all activists around the world working to stop violence in their communities.
Sixty finalists will be chosen and invited to New York to attend the V-Day Gathering to End Violence Against Women, a day-long strategy session in New York on February 10, 2001, where their strategies will be presented and discussed. At the Gathering, the regional coordinators will select three winning ideas and a concrete global action plan to stop rape will be formulated.
Winners will have the opportunity to see their action plans implemented in their countries, supported by grants from the V-Day Fund. The STOP-RAPE Contest finalists will also attend the gala V-Day 2001 performance and rally that will take place in Madison Square Garden on the evening of February 10, 2001.
