V-Day is a global activist movement to end violence against women and girls that raises funds and awareness through benefit productions of Playwright/Founder Eve Ensler’s award winning play The Vagina Monologues and other artistic works.In 2010, over 5,400 V-Day benefit events took place produced by volunteer activists in the U.S. and around the world, educating millions of people about the reality of violence against women and girls. To date, the V-Day movement has raised over $75 million and educated millions about the issue of violence against women and the efforts to end it. In twelve years, the V-Day movement has reached over 300 million people.

The Vagina Monologues, hailed by The New York Times as "funny" and "poignant" and by the Daily News as "intelligent" and "courageous, was first performed off-Broadway by Eve Ensler and dives into the mystery, humor, pain, power, wisdom, outrage and excitement buried in women’s experiences. V‑Day Creative Women Unite The Vagina Monologues 2011 is a multilingual performance with monologues being performed in English, Spanish, and French. Funds from the performance will benefit Women Healing and Empowering Women (WHEW) and the V-Day Spotlight Campaign Women and Girls of Haiti.
