For everyone of us who is enjoying flowers, candy, cards, wine, and a moment of affection today, there is a woman who is fighting for her right to live, much less be loved. Please take one minute to consider these women and what needs to change so that all women can be free, safe, and thrive.


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 sex 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 men and to end the violence.

V-Day is a fierce, wild, unstoppable movement and community. Join us!
