VDAY - A Global Movement to End Violence Against Women and Girls

Anyone else doing something for V-Day?  My little university has this planned:

UPCOMING VDAY EVENTS! Help end violence against women.

*February 2-5 & 9-12 @ Lane Center 10-4: VDAY sale with scarves, buttons, jelly bracelets, Vagina soap bars and VDAY Vegan Chapsticks for a donation to the Family Crisis Resource Center and Dove Center.

*February 13 & 14 @ PAC: The Vagina Monologues  - Vagina Fair begins at 6:30 followed by the performance.

*February 17th @ Upper Quad 7pm: Take Back the Night March, Rally, and Open Mic Night

I talked to the coordinator and the soaps and some of the scarves (which are ALL handmade!) are also vegan.  Yay!

Cool!  I didn't even know about that.  The Vagina Monologues will be performed at four places near me.  I've never seen TVM, but I've wanted to see it.  A Yes-on-8er has been trying to get me to do something with her.  I loaned her a gay movie to watch (Save Me with Chad Allen).  Depending on her feedback from that, I may suggest seeing this together.  Or I may go by myself.  All of my IRL friends are yes-ers.  I don't need any more.

Awesome!  In school they would sell "Pussy Pops" which were chocolate on a stick in the shape of a vagina!  Don't think they were vegan thought.  Also there were always a bunch of pink "Vagina Warriors" t-shirts.  Sadly, due to vegantine's prom I will be unable to attend any local events....

Don't "sadly" my prom!  :D

JK.  I'm going to Vagina Monologues the week before.  I can't wait!

VHZ, you should come with me!

The college near me does the Vagina monologues now, and my husband will be helping out again this year.  Sadly it's run by students , so I can't participate, but I intend on advertising =-) 

I was in it last year, and it was a BLAST.  I HIGHLY recommend auditioning for the Vagina Monologues if you like that sorta thing and really want to feel empowered as a woman. 

But deifinately see them, tell other people to see them, and love your vagina  :)>>>

A friend and I are seeing The Vagina Monologues on my University's campus. One of my undergrads has a part in it!

There's also some sort of silent auction going on, plus lots of vagina-themed things for sale at the booths the women's center is putting up. (Chocolate vaginas, anyone?)

I wouldn't swap working for a University for anything in the world!!
