NEW! V-Men Workshops
V-Day invites men and boys throughout the world to join V-Day in 2010 as we launch the first phase of V-Men.
Developed by men, V-Men is a new program inviting the voices of men and boys into the worldwide movement and the dialogue about ending violence against women and girls. V-Men will work with men and boys in communities to address the issue of violence against women from a male perspective, addressing the root causes of the violence and the ways men can help end it.
Over the next year V-Day organizers will hold V-Men workshops, consisting of a PowerPoint presentation compiled by a dedicated committee of V-Men, along with an overview for hosting a workshop to engage men in a dialogue about ending violence against women. These workshops will lead to the development of a V-Men theatrical piece, scheduled to debut for V-Season 2011.
NEW V-Men Column: "Healing Work: A Poetic Memoir" by Yolo Akili
As a little boy I watched daily as the men in my life terrorized women through acts of control, aggression, and violence. These same men also worked hard to beat out of me any expression they deemed "feminine" and "weak." Because of this I grew up with an awareness early on that something was wrong with the men in my world. It was an understanding so simple and yet so precise: These men were in pain. A lot of pain. What was this pain? Had you asked me then I would not have known.
