On April 16, V-Day, the global movement to end violence against women and girls, celebrated its tenth anniversary, V TO THE TENTH, in New Orleans Friday - Saturday, April 11-12 at the New Orleans Arena and Louisiana Superdome. Over 30,000 people attended the events over the two days. The event featured over 125 speakers, over 40 stars. Two days of revolutionary conversations, slam poets, singers, performers, storytelling, astounding art. Katrina exposed what was going on in New Orleans and the Gulf South: the lack of resources, the lack of care for its poor in general and its women in particular.
