V is for Poetry.

“V is for poetry” is an organization in NYC that promotes the awareness of:

Flyer for the first event.
  • Rape
  • Domestic Violence
  • Female Mutilation
  • Child Abuse
  • Purity
  • Lesbian Rights/Homophobia
  • Racism
  • Economic Justice
  • & AIDS

.....through poetry, dance, music and art

This organization reaches out to women all over the world of different cultures, backgrounds and ethnicities. It is a group that uplifts the image of a strong and virtuous woman. The V stands for Vagina. Which is a women’s temple of purity, reproducing and emotion. But what if the vagina could speak? What would it say? What stories would it tell? Those very stories can vary from a woman in an abusive relationship to a little girl who is secretly molested. This organization was created to bring these issues to the light and help put a stop to it.

Inspired by: The Vagina Monologues (Eve Ensler)

A friend of mine was promoting this organization on Facebook, and I was curious. I find it to be pretty interesting, I've heard of The Vagina Monologues and I think that it is very good that it has inspired others. I will not perform but I will be attending the event.
