Best international feminist organization (2008)

V-DAY

V-DAY—its V kinda stands for "vagina" and "valentine"—was started by black-bobbed playwright Eve Ensler (of The Vagina Monologues), and what makes it compelling is international focus: This past year, for instance, they organized an anti-violence protest in Juárez, Mexico, and presented feminist speakers from Baghdad, from Israel and Palestine (together), and from Iran. V-day has also focused attention on the situation of Japanese comfort women, on acid burning, and on female genital mutilation. Their slogan: "Vagina Warrior."
