The American Medical Women’s Association’s annual V Week Celebration will start Monday, Feb. 14, and extend through Friday, Feb. 18.
For those unfamiliar with the event, V Week is an expansion of V Day, an activist movement with the aim of ending violence against women. It was started by Eve Ensler (now known as V), the author of The Vagina Monologues, among many other plays.
V Week consists of several organizations who collaborate to host events to raise awareness and provide training on such issues as intimate partner/domestic violence, sexual harassment and assault, sex/gender discrimination and women's health issues. Learn more.
Please refer to the week itinerary below for specific event times and locations.
Throughout the V Week Celebration, AMWA will be holding a period product donation drive. Please consider donating tampons, pads, or packaged undergarments. All donations will be given to the Kent State Women’s Center. Donations can be placed in the donation bins throughout the NEOMED campus.
