About the movement


A global movement to end violence against women and girls.

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!

Informantion regarding the We Speak event

WeSpeak: Women's Story Circle

We join together to nurture those stories in new ways. Some of us may choose to perform our stories and some of us will choose to keep our stories spoken only to the circle.

Workshop will begin on January 26, 2015 at 6:15 pm at Enso Healing Arts Center at 2112 17th Street. It will be co-facilitated by Julie Jordan Scott, Lori Renee and Lindsay Sharp. The focus of the workshop will be to begin developing stories using movement & dancing, drumming, writing prompts and times of discussion to further each woman?s creative process.
