The Vagina Monologues in an annual performance and action in solidarity with hundreds of campuses across the nation and world. It serves to facilitate dialogue on violence done against women. In a day where one in three women will be sexually abused, the space to talk about violence against women is a place to begin ending violence against women.
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.
At Emory, the Vagina Monologues exists through Feminists in Action, the undergraduate group on campus promoting gender equity through popular education and social justice.
The founder of V-Day is Eve Ensler. She is a playwright, performer, and activist. To learn more about the Vday campaign and Eve Ensler please click here.
