The V-Day Core

V-Day is a global activist movement to end violence against all women and girls (cisgender, transgender, and those who hold fluid identities that are subject to gender based violence).

The V-Day Core consists of Founder Eve Ensler and a small number of full and part-time team members. A much larger number of supporters and V-Day activists generously give their time and lend their resources to stop the violence. Eve Ensler has never received payment from V-Day for her work as an author, performer or organizer.
