This weekend V-Day is coming to New York City. V-Day is a global movement to stop violence against women and girls. It promotes creative events to increase awareness, raise money and revitalize the spirit of existing anti-violence organizations, creating broader attention for the fight to stop violence against women and girls, including rape, battery, incest, female genital mutilation (FGM) and sexual slavery.
So often the causes we support seem somewhat removed from our immediate circumstances. Violence against women is something that touches each of our lives in ways that you might not even be aware of. For too long women of all ages, not just in foreign places but right in your community, have been silenced out of fear or shame. This weekend, please come out and show your support.
Members of the NYU Educational Theatre community present...
