V-Day: Global Movement to Stop Violence Against Women and Girls Marks 20th Anniversary

As the White House is facing an escalating scandal over how it ignored the serious accusations of former Staff Secretary Rob Porter’s verbal and physical violence against his two ex-wives, we end today’s show looking at the worldwide movement called V-Day to stop violence against women and girls. Today marks the 20th anniversary of the V-Day movement, which was inspired by Eve Ensler’s groundbreaking play “The Vagina Monologues.” DN! speaks to three V-Day activists from around the world: Christine Schuler Deschryver of the Democratic Republic of Congo, Rada Boric from Croatia and Agnes Pareyio from Kenya.
