College and Community Campaigns
V-Day is a global activist movement to end violence against women and girls. V-Day is a catalyst that promotes creative events to increase awareness, raise money, and revitalize the spirit of existing anti-violence organizations. V-Day generates broader attention for the fight to stop violence against women and girls, including rape, battery, incest, female genital mutilation (FGM), and sex slavery.
Over the past 17 years, V-Day's grassroots activists have proven that, when offered the support and tools to end violence against women in a creative way, they eagerly embrace the opportunity. Through V-Day's College and Community Campaigns, thousands of motivated individuals across the globe have hosted V-Day benefit events, using Eve Ensler’s The Vagina Monologues and other artistic pieces to raise money for local organizations working to end violence against women and girls, as well as heightening awareness in their communities about the global and local epidemic of gender-based violence.
V-Day offers 2 artistic pieces that require registration in order to be staged in compliance with V-Day guidelines (vspot.vday.org):
The Vagina Monologues remains V-Day's most chosen creative vehicle to bring the message forward. It has been performed by women around the world, raising both funds and awareness.
A Memory, A Monologue, A Rant and A Prayer shares the voices of many writers about the issue and offers students and communities the opportunity to include men in the cast.
Beginning in 1998 with one event in New York City, the College and Community campaigns extend to more than 140 countries with on average over 5,000 benefit performances annually. Through their benefit events, college and community activists raise funds that stay in their communities, donated to local groups such as domestic violence shelters and rape crises centers.
