what is V-DAY?

V-DAY is a global activist movement to stop violence against women and girls. through V-DAY campaigns, local volunteers produce annual benefit performances of the vagina monologues to raise awareness and funds for anti-violence groups within their own communities. in 2010, over 5,400 V-DAY benefit events took place produced by volunteer activists in the U.S. and around the world in 130 countries, educating millions of people about the reality of violence against women and girls. in eleven years, the V-DAY movement has raised over $80 million and reached over 300 million people.

 

the 'V' in V-DAY stands for Victory, Valentine and Vagina.

 

V-DAY Seoul is a devoted group of korean and foreign volunteers dedicated to raising awareness and funds for women of the korean community who are victims of violence. since 2007, hundreds of volunteers have come together to promote, produce and perform the vagina monologues to educate and generate funds in support of the korea women’s hotline, dasi hamkke center and the marriage migrants network of the seoul immigration office. this year, the proceeds from our performances will go to support KUMFA (korean unwed mothers family association), a non-profit organization that supports unwed mothers through psychological, educational and vocational programs. they are working to educate the public and to change social attitudes to prevent discrimination towards single mothers and their children.
