V-Day Seoul will hold a string of events from Feb. 19 until April 17 to support charities that help women who face violence and discrimination.
Highlights include an art auction featuring local and international artists at The Alley in Itaewon. The auction will also have a DJ and artists will deliver their own “vagina monologues.”
Proceeds from the evening will benefit Korean Unwed Mothers & Families Association. KUMFA, more commonly known as Miss Mamma Mia, works to erase the stigma attached to unwed mothers in Korea.
V-Day Seoul started in 2007 and has supported the Korea Women’s Hotline, Dasi Hamkee Center, and The Marriage Migrants Network of the Seoul Immigration Office.
This year’s campaign will end with a production of Eve Ensler’s award-winning play “The Vagina Monologues” on April 16 and 17.
