RISE! RESIST! UNITE!
Every 14 February, One Billion Rising is being organized worldwide, as a sign of protest towards violence against women and girls.
According to statistics, 1 in 3 women across the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime.
That’s ONE BILLION WOMEN AND GIRLS. Every February, we rise – in hundreds of countries across the world – to show our local communities and the world what one billion looks like and shine a light on the rampant impunity and injustice that survivors most often face. We rise through dance to express joy and community and and celebrate the fact that we have not been defeated by this violence.
We rise to show we are determined to create a new kind of consciousness – one where violence will be resisted until it is unthinkable.
THIS YEAR, WE ARE RISING IN SOLIDARITY OF REVOLUTION!
