Description

According to the United Nations, 1 in 3 women on the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime

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.

Through V-Day Lafayette's campaign, local volunteers and college students produce annual benefit performances of The Vagina Monologues; A Memory, A Monologue and A Rant and A Prayer. V-Day also stages benefits, produces innovative gatherings, films and campaigns to educate and change social attitudes towards violence against women, and participates in ONE BILLION RISING, the largest call to action of people across the world to strike, dance, and RISE in defiance of the injustices women suffer, demanding an end at last to violence against women.
