V-10: Until the Violence Stops

Pretty much everyone knows that today is Valentine’s Day. What you might not know is that it’s also the tenth anniversary of Eve Ensler’sV-Day crusade.

From the website:
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. V-Day generates broader attention for the fight to
stop violence against women and girls, including rapt, battery, incest,
female genital mutilation (FGM) and sexual slavery.

For anyone interested and local to the Nashville area, Eve Ensler (also author of The Vagine MonogloguesM) will be speaking at the Vanderbilt Student Life Center at 7 pm on 2/18/08.
