Celebrate International Women's Day, Celebrate V-Day Activists!



V-Day celebrates women worldwide today and everyday. Activists everywhere inspire us and we thank and honor you all!

This V-Season, over 5,400 V-Day benefit events are taking place on college campuses and in communities in over 50 countries and all 50 of the United States.

Today alone, V-Day activists in seven countries including Canada, Spain, France, Switzerland, England, and Scotland, and in 18 of the United States, are activating their communities through events and teach-ins, raising funds and awareness to end the violence the afflicts one in three women worldwide.

The V-activities taking place are shaking up new and old institutions, engaging diverse groups of people. From European Parliament to Occupy Wall Street, from Austin to Belarus, V-energy is taking hold and ONE BILLION RISING has begun. Here’s a snapshot of the stories for you to read:

On February 14th, 2013 we will walk out, dance, rise up, and demand an end to this violence, but the work begins TODAY. Now is the moment that we must gather, harness our collective energy, and escalate towards this celebration.

Today we must stand together and SAY NO TO VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN AND GIRLS.
