V-DAY FILIPINA WOMEN'S NETWORK 2010
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 Asian Pacific women and girls.
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
Violence statistics in the API community is scant and this fundraiser is an urgent campaign to
prevent and help eliminate violence against API women and girls.
Violence does not discriminate
regardless of class, ability, age, education,
immigration status, sexual orientation,
Join the chorus of voices
around the WORLD, as we say "No" to violence against women and girls. 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 is 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 twelve years, The Vagina Monologues has given voice to experiences and feelings not previously exposed in public.
A Memory, A Monologue, A Rant and A Prayer:
Writings To Stop Violence Against Women and Girls (MMRP)
MMRP is a groundbreaking collection of monologues by world-renowned authors and playwrights, edited by Eve Ensler and Mollie Doyle and commissioned by V-Day. These diverse voices rise up in a collective roar to break open, expose, and examine the insidiousness of violence at all levels: brutality, neglect, a punch, even a put-down.
