What is V-Day? V-Day is a global movement to stop violence against women and girls. V-Day is a catalyst that promotes creative events to increase awareness, raise money, and revitalize the spirit of existing anti-violence organizations. Through benefit performances of “The Vagina Monologues,” unique documentary film projects and innovative gatherings designed to change social attitudes toward violence, V-Day generates broader attention for the fight to stop worldwide violence against women and girls including rape, battery, incest, female genital mutilation (FGM), and sexual slavery. In its first six years, the V-Day movement has raised over $20 million. The 'V' in V-Day stands for Victory, Valentine and Vagina. For more information, please visit www.vday.org.

The V-Day Worldwide Campaign invites members of communities around the world to present benefit productions of “The Vagina Monologues” on or around V-Day (February 14th) to raise money and awareness to stop violence against women and girls. The proceeds from these events are donated directly to local organizations in the community that are working to stop this violence. The Worldwide Campaign strives to empower women to find their collective voices and demand an end to the epidemic levels of violence and abuse in their communities around the world.

Can I get a ticket at the door? I don't know that I could make it to any of those places during business hours.

They tell us that the show sold out in a few days last time they did it and they expect the same this time around. I can pick up a ticket for you if you're interested, Lisa -- just let me know :)

Jen- Yes, thank you! I would appreciate that. I want to go on Saturday. Is the seating ticketed, or is it first come? If it's ticketed, maybe I could coordinate with someone else who hasn't gotten their tickets yet so I don't have to sit by myself.
