What is V-Day?
V-Day is a global activist movement to stop 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. Through V-Day campaigns, local volunteers and college students produce annual benefit performances of several different events to raise awareness and funds for anti-violence groups within their own communities, and for the global V-Day campaign. For more information about V-Day, please visit http://www.vday.org/home.
The University of Idaho’s V-Day campaign includes three performances of The Vagina Monologues; a showing of the documentary Until the Violence Stops; a number of educational “teach-ins,” and a special art exhibition and reception featuring preview readings from the play.
