V-Day brings the issue of violence against women and girls front and center in the culture and the community. In order to understand the grave importance of this cause, one must know that violence is an issue that plagues all women and men in every part of the world. To better show the depth and scope of violence against women, V-Day has compiled a list of statistics and resources that evidence the impact that violence against women has on the individual, and the community. One of V-Day’s purposes is to amplify the work of existing groups, thus, since V-Day does not provide direct services, the resources listed here are from exceptional groups working to end violence against women locally, nationally and internationally. We hope that the knowledge that violence against women and girls is a common issue for all people will inspire you to join V-Day in our mission to end the violence and change the story of women.
