______________________________________________________________________
About V-Day V-Day is a global movement to end violence against women and girls that raises funds and
awareness through benefit productions of Playwright/Founder Eve Ensler’s award winning play The Vagina
Monologues. 2008 marks V-Day’s 10 year anniversary and with it V-Day has introduced two new events, V-
Day’s A Memory, A Monologue, A Rant and A Prayer: Writings on Violence Against Women and Girls, and the
V-Day documentary Until The Violence Stops. In 2007, more than 3000 V-Day events took place in the U.S.
and around the world. To date, the V-Day movement has raised over $50 million and educated millions
about the issue of violence against women and the efforts to end it, crafted international educational, media
and PSA campaigns, launched the Karama program in the Middle East, reopened shelters, and funded over
5000 community-based anti-violence programs and safe houses in Kenya, South Dakota, Egypt and Iraq.
The 'V' in V-Day stands for Victory, Valentine and Vagina.

What is a V-Day Campaign?
A V-Day Campaign is a catalyst for mobilizing women and men to heighten awareness about violence against
women and girls. By creating this global community, V-Day strives to empower women to find their
collective voices and demand an end to the violence that affects one in three women in the US and around
the world.
