V-Day, is a global activist movement to end violence against women and girls started by author, playwright and activist Eve Ensler. The event is to help raise awareness of women's issues and raise much needed funds for local charities.
Recipients of the VDAY Airdrie TVM 2019 funds were donated to Airdrie and District Victim Assistance Society and Community Links to help recruit and train frontline volunteers, programs, counselling/therapy specific to women who are victims of family violence and/or sexual abuse.
Thank you to all our sponsors and donors for supporting the cause. This year we raised in excess of our goal all thanks to our community. A special thank you to Kiersten & Jennifer Mohr...and CNOOC International Ltd. matching staff and corporate dollars to support our local causes.
The award-winning play is based on V-Day Founder/playwright Eve Ensler's interviews with more than 200 women. With humour and grace, the piece celebrates women's sexuality and strength. Through this play and the liberation of this one word, countless women throughout the world have taken control of their bodies and their lives. For 20 years, The Vagina Monologues has given voice to experiences and feelings not previously exposed in public and brought a deeper consciousness to the conversation around ending violence against women and girls.
