Feature: “100 Men Rise For V-Day: Why Are Vaginas Important To You?”

The title, the concept itself is maybe a bit awkward…but before you decide to skip this video or before you get any funny ideas in your head…just WATCH.

At first, I thought it would be some kind of funny video…maybe a joke? I think the editing, the concept was brilliant…and somehow I felt that it empowered “vaginas” or females.

Background info:
Connecticut College has participated in V-Day, the global activist movement to end violence against women and girls for 11 years, hosting productions of “The Vagina Monologues” on campus to raise awareness and funds. Through these benefits performances, we have donated $65,922 to local anti violence organizations. This year, I reached out to men as part of V-Day’s One Billion Rising For Justice campaign.


A Call To Action: As Producer of the 2014 Connecticut College Vaginas Monologues, I asked 100 men “Why are vaginas important to you?” to raise awareness for The Connecticut College Vagina Monologues, Domestic Violence Awareness Month and Sexual Assault Awareness Month.
