V-Day is Here: One Billion Rising Will Walk! Dance! Rise!


A message from V-Day founder, Eve Ensler:

Find a Rising near you here.

The official Break the Chain video:

One more time, the basic information from One Billion Rising and “Break the Chain”:

‘Break the Chain’ aims to raise awareness around the world about V-Day’s fastest escalating global campaign to date, ONE BILLION RISING. The ONE BILLION RISING campaign began as a call to action based on the staggering statistic that 1 in 3 women on the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime. With the world population at 7 billion, this adds up to more than ONE BILLION WOMEN AND GIRLS. On 14 February 2013, V-Day’s 15th anniversary, activists, writers, thinkers, celebrities and women and men across the world will come together to express their outrage, strike, dance, and RISE in defiance of the injustices women suffer, demanding an end at last to violence against women.

Of course, one day of even large numbers of people Walking and Dancing and Rising must be followed by many days of action.
