From the V-Day website:
V-Day is an organized response against violence toward women.
V-Day is a day. We proclaim Valentine's Day as V-Day, to celebrate women and end the violence.
Their four core beliefs:
Art has the power to transform thinking and inspire people to act
Lasting social and cultural change is spread by ordinary people doing extraordinary things
Local women best know what their communities need and can become unstoppable leaders
One must look at the intersection of race, class, and gender to understand violence against women
What is better that that? So ladies, if you're single and cranky, remember to empower yourselves today. Love Valentine's Day for the same reasons I do. End violence against women and girls!! Celebrate your body, your spirit, your art, yourself! Happy V-Day!!!!
