V-Day Movement

One in three women worldwide will be physically or sexually abused in her lifetime. The work of V-Day is grounded in the beliefs that "art has the power to transform thinking and inspire people to act, lasting social and cultural change is spread by ordinary people doing extraordinary things, local women best know what their communities need and can become unstoppable leaders, and one must look at the intersection of race, class, and gender to understand violence against women."

V-Day's mission is simple. It demands that violence against women and girls must end. To do this, every year in February, March and April, Eve Ensler allows different groups around the world to produce a performance of her play Vagina Monologues. The proceeds from all V-Day events go to local individual projects and programs that work to end violence against women and girls, often shelters and rape crisis centers.

On February 14th, the Women's Center comes together and sells roses to the USD community. The proceeds from this event go to a local San Diego shelter. Our hope is to raise awareness about the issue of violence against women in our community and in our world.
