One Billion Rising against gender violence

one-billion-rising
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 together with others 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 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 AGAINST THE EXPLOITATION OF WOMEN in Delhi, Jaipur and Kolkata throughout December, January and February with campaign series of protest actions to culminate on 14 February 2017. Follow us on Facebook to learn more.
