VMEN Event

V-MEN: Steppin' Up
Hosted by Lubbock V-Men

V-Men started in 2009 with a workshop that focused on including men in the dialogue of violence against women. This V-Men workshop allowed men to tell their stories, just like women have done through The Vagina Monologues. Not only did this allow men to establish a context to come together on the issues of domestic and sexual violence, but it also allowed participants to be ground-floor collaborators on a new performance piece to be performed for the first time this coming February.
