V-Day is an activist movement to end violence against women and girls. Its premise is to educate the public and generate attention for the fight to stop violence against women and girls through performance and creative events. Within our York chapter, we strive to educate on gender and sexuality and break down taboo topics. Every year we producer an entirely student-driven benefit production of The Vagina Monologues. The majority of our club proceeds go to The North York Women's Shelter, an emergency women and children's shelter in our community. We'll see you at the show!
