V-Day is a global movement to end violence against women and girls that raises funds and awareness through benefit productions of playwright Eve Ensler's award-winning play, “The Vagina Monologues,” and other artistic works. In 2008, volunteer activists in the U.S. and around the world produced more than 4,000 V-Day events.

The V-Day movement has raised more $60 million and educated millions about violence against women and the efforts to end it. These efforts include crafting international educational media and PSA campaigns, launching the Karama program in the Middle East, opening shelters and funding more than 6,000 community-based antiviolence programs and safe houses in the Democratic Republic Of Congo, Haiti, Kenya, South Dakota, Egypt and Iraq.
