V-Day Campaign in Changwon CityView of Foreigner
V-Day Campaign has been successfully held for the first time in Changwon city to raise awareness to stop violence against women and girls and to raise funds for beneficiaries ? Women’s shelter in Masan and women of the Democratic Republic of Congo. This campaign was organized by V-Day Changwon, a group of foreign women who feel a need to contribute to the community they live in and would like to show how foreigners can help make a difference in Korea. As part of the campaign, V-Day Changwon presented a benefit production of Eve Ensler’s award-winning play The Vagina Monologues at Mujur Pub and Restaurant on Sunday, March 14, 2010.

Prof. Kyunghee Moon of the Department of International Relations, and Cecile Hwang of the Language Education Center, both participated in the said campaign and performed “Say It,” a monologue about comfort women. Both women agree that despite the government’s efforts, violence still exists in Korean society and hope that with events like V-Day Campaign, the rate of violence on women will decrease and eventually, violence against women and girls around the world will stop.

The campaign also included other fundraising events such as auction party, garage sale, and donation. All the proceeds from the events went to the Women’s Shelter in Masan.

V-Day Changwon was granted the rights to participate in the V-Day Campaign by V-day, a global movement to end violence against women and girls. It raises funds and awareness through benefit productions. In 2009, over 4200 V-Day benefit events took place produced by volunteer activists in the U.S. and around the world. The benefit educated millions of people about the reality of violence against women and girls. To date, the V-Day movement has raised over $70 million and educated millions about the issue of violence against women and the efforts to end it.
