Mission

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!

STOP RAPING OUR GREATEST RESOURCE: Power to the Women & Girls of the DRC

STOP RAPING OUR GREATEST RESOURCE: POWER TO THE WOMEN AND GIRLS OF DRC is a five-year global campaign of V-Day and UNICEF - in conjunction with DRC-based local women’s groups on the ground - that began in 2007.   The campaign seeks to:

-Increase pressure at all levels – international, national and local – to STOP RAPE IN THE DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO, while highlighting the role of women as activists.
-Expose the devastating impact of rape on Congolese women’s health, their families and their communities
-Call for specific measures to end impunity for perpetrators
-Economically and socially empower women and girls to lead in the prevention of sexual violence and in the rebuilding of a country devastated by conflict
-Build and open the City of Joy in conjunction with PANZI Hospital and Dr. Mukwege, a center where survivors will be provided with support to heal and training to further develop their leadership and life skills.
 
“What we’re seeing in the DRC is a war being enacted on the bodies of women that is conscious and intentional - it is the systematic destruction of the female population of the Congo.  But after three trips to the Congo in the last eighteen months, I have seen the spirit and strength of the Congolese women translated into a burgeoning movement which is turning pain to power.” – Eve Ensler
