The vibrancy of this photo pulls me in to see what it's all about. This valentines day, the Vagina Monologues were being performed. I performed in them last year, but sadly couldn't this year. I did, however, get to check out all the awesome merchandise. The red, pink, and purples definitely caught the valentines color palette, but something seemed stronger about the colors in this photo compared to the usual valentines softness. I feel like this successfully captures the power and activism of V-Week and the fight against violence towards women. The red shirt says “Make their voices count” and my favorite button of the group says “My short skirt is NOT an invitation”. The hot pink V on the left pulls my focus, though, because it stands out from all the reds.
