V-DAY FILIPINA WOMEN'S NETWORK
"Women of Color United Against Violence"
somewhere in the U.S., in a place close to you
a woman becomes
every 20 minutes
and those are just the reported cases.
The Filipina Women's Network advocates for an education campaign to raise awareness
about the violence being perpetrated against Women.
Violence against women takes shape in a multitude of forms including domestic violence,
stalking, rape, sexual assault, the trafficking of women and children,
date rape, verbal abuse, harassment, and hate crimes.
Violence does not discriminate regardless of class, ability, age, education,
immigration status, sexual orientation, and religion.
Join the chorus of voices around the WORLD, as we say "No" to violence against Women of Color. Bring your grandmother, your mother, your wife, your aunt, your sister, your daughter, your niece, your friend. Empower them. Free them. Bring the men in your lives, too.
Let us all help stop the madness.

What are The Vagina Monologues?
Award-winning play based on V-Day Founder/playwright Eve Ensler's interviews with more than 200 women. With humor 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 more than 13 years, The Vagina Monologues has given voice to experiences and feelings not previously exposed in public.
