*V-Day Stop Rape Contest Deadline Approaching

Launched on Valentine’s Day in 1998 with a benefit performance of The Vagina Monologues, the Obie-award winning play by Eve Ensler, V-Day is a movement to stop violence against women. In early October, the V-Day Movement to end violence against women announced the launch of the STOP RAPE Contest, a worldwide initiative to stop rape.

The Feminist Majority Foundation, which is a key national co-sponsor of V-Day, invites all Choices members to participate in this contest by creating a plan of action in two pages or less with innovative strategies to stop rape and end violence against women. Sixty finalists will be invited to the February 10, 2001, V-Day Gathering to End Violence Against Women in New York. Winners will have the opportunity to see their action plans implemented in their countries, supported by grants from the V-Day Fund.
For more information on the STOP-RAPE Contest, visit http://www.feminist.org/news/pr/pr092900.html. For entry forms, contact: Cherreka Montgomery, v-day@feminist.org .
