V-day have launched a fantastic new campaign called One Billion Rising. The campaign raises awareness about the fact that 1 billion women in the world is abused in their lifetime and am calling for an end to violence.
"There are 7 billion people on the planet. Half are women. One third of them are raped or beaten. V-Day refuses to watch as more than one billion women experience violence. V-Day is going further now, saying no more. We're inviting ONE BILLION women and those who love them to walk out, dance, rise up and demand an end to this violence. On 2.14.13, we will move the earth, activating women and men to dance across every country. The celebration of One Billion Rising will be a WORLD HAPPENING In advance of our 15th anniversary, join V-Day and One Billion Rising to SAY NO TO VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN AND GIRLS.
