V-Week

V-Week is Dartmouth's yearly campaign in late February to end violence against women. The week is coordinated by the student group V-Day Dartmouth and advised by staff at the Center for Gender & Student Engagement (CGSE), formerly the Center for Women and Gender (CWG). To get involved in planning and coordinating V-Day Dartmouth contact the Center for Gender & Student Engagement or blitz CWG. Students, staff, faculty, and community members are also invited to participate in the yearly production of the Vagina Monologues. Audition information will be sent to campus via D2U and you can contact the CGSE for a copy of the audition script. If you have ideas for an event you'd like to see as part of V-Week, we welcome your input! For more information about V-Day, the international campaign click HERE!
