During the VDay Sussex 2012 season, which runs from February 1st through April 30th , we are not only concerned with raising awareness about the negative reality of violence against women and girls, but also with enabling and inspiring positive social scripts on campus in order to challenge those realities. V-Day is a global activist movement to end violence against women and girls. It is a catalyst that promotes creative events to increase awareness, raise money, and revitalize the spirit of existing anti-violence organizations.
This year, dozens of motivated students, faculty members and staff on the Sussex campus are working to produce a benefit production of The Vagina Monologues. But performance is only the beginning, we are also designing complementary artistic, participatory and experiential workshops.
