Welcome to V-World (November 2006)
In my global travels on behalf of V-Day, I meet Vagina Warriors who have dedicated their lives to ending violence against women.
People often ask me to write a blog, to talk about my experiences, to share my stories, to convey the emotions: heartache; compassion; confusion; joy; that come from the work that I do and the people that I meet.
In my global travels on behalf of V-Day, I meet Vagina Warriors who have dedicated their lives to ending violence against women. These are women and men who have been through or witnessed terrible violence and rather than getting an AK-47 or retaliating or becoming avengers, they actually grieve what happened to them, they experience what happened to them, and in doing that something transforms them and they then commit their lives to making sure it doesn’t happen to anyone else. Vagina Warriors are everywhere. In a time of escalating and explosive violence on the planet, these Warriors are fostering a new paradigm.
