College and Community Campaigns

V-Day is a catalyst that promotes creative events to increase awareness, raise money, and revitalize the spirit of existing anti-violence organizations. It grew quickly into a mass movement active on every continent since it was founded almost 20 years ago. It has become a crucial catalyst in the global fight to stop gender-based violence as it, attacking the silence that allows violence against women to continue.

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 curated by V-Day 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 activists have worked to shed light on the fact that political instability and armed conflict—fueled by religious, ethnic, nationalist and economic forces—further escalate the risk of such violence, as rape, battery, and sexual slavery are used as weapons of war. At the same time, immigration status, racial bias, transphobia and homophobia, and economic inequality keep women in unsafe working conditions, where they often have to endure violence as part of the job.

GET INVOLVED:

PRODUCE A V-DAY EVENT IN YOUR COMMUNITY / COLLEGE / WORKPLACE:

V-Day offers two artistic pieces that require registration in order to be staged in compliance with V-Day guidelines.

  • The Vagina Monologues reminds us with each performance that the personal is political, that speaking out can be an act of resistance. This remains V-Day's most chosen creative vehicle to bring the message forward. It has been performed by women (cisgender, transgender, and gender non conforming) 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 theatrical roles for men, as well as women and folks of all gender identities.

This is the moment. V20: Rise, Resist Unite.
