Yesterday might have been Valentine’s Day, but V-Day goes on!
V-Day is not just about candies, flowers, and stressing over whether to “celebrate” what is essentially a made-up holiday. As I have posted here before, Holland Cox is co-sponsoring a local production of The Vagina Monologues. Not only do I want to invite all of you to the performance (again), but I want to remind you what V-Day is all about.
The author of The Vagina Monologues, Eve Ensler, is also the founder of V-Day, a global movement to end violence against women and girls. The horrors that women face worldwide is something that we might not want to think about at all, but is something that needs to be thought about, and talked about. Definitely more than once a year. Just like making sure your loved ones know you care about them.
So, to keep V-Day going, tell your friends, families and lovers how much you love them today, and you should probably do it tomorrow and the next day, as well. Then consider helping out the V-Day organization by taking action in your local communities, or by supporting our production of The Vagina Monologues.
I will also personally donate $10 to the House of Ruth (the beneficiary of our production) for every purchase made at www.hollandcox.com and my Etsy store during the month of February. Keep V-Day going at least until the end of the month, if not all year round!
