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.
In conjunction with the 15th anniversary, V-Day launched its most ambitious campaign to date - ONE BILLION RISING. The concept of the campaign is simple. If you take into account the statistic that one out of three women will experience violence in her lifetime, you are left with the staggering statistic that over one billion women on this planet will be impacted by violence. On V-Day's 15th Anniversary, 2/14/13, we are inviting ONE BILLION women and those who love them to WALK OUT, DANCE, RISE UP and DEMAND an end to this violence.
