VDAY: a Global Movement to End Violence Against Women and Girls

Mission:
  • V-Day is an organized response against violence toward women. 
  • V-Day is a vision: We see a world where women live safely and freely. 
  • V-Day is a demand: Rape, incest, battery, genital mutilation and sexual slavery must end now. 
  • V-Day is a spirit: We believe women should spend their lives creating and thriving rather than surviving or recovering from terrible atrocities. 
  • V-Day is a catalyst: By raising money and consciousness, it will unify and strengthen existing anti-violence efforts. Triggering far-reaching awareness, it will lay the groundwork for new educational, protective, and legislative endeavors throughout the world. 
  • V-Day is a process: We will work as long as it takes. We will not stop until the violence stops. 
  • V-Day is a day. We proclaim Valentine's Day as V-Day, to celebrate women and end the violence. 
  • V-Day is a fierce, wild, unstoppable movement and community. Join us!

Great post about a great organization!

The International Violence Against Women Act is an incredibly important act that Congress needs to pay attention to. Join The Extraordinaries and Man Up Campaign at http://www.BeExtra.org/ManUp, put your picture on the map alongside other supporters and end the injustices now!
