A film by Eve Ensler and Tony Stroebel
One billion women violated is an atrocity. One billion women – and men — dancing is a revolution. More information at http://www.onebillionrising.org
ONE IN THREE WOMEN ON THE PLANET WILL BE RAPED OR BEATEN IN HER LIFETIME.*
On V-Day’s 15th Anniversary, 14 February 2013, ONE BILLION women and those who love them are invited to WALK OUT, DANCE, RISE UP, and DEMAND an end to this violence. ONE BILLION RISING will move the earth, activating women and men across every country. V-Day wants the world to see our collective strength, our numbers, our solidarity across borders.
ONE BILLION RISING IS:
- A global strike
- A call to men and women to refuse to participate in the status quo until rape and rape culture ends
- An act of solidarity, demonstrating to women the commonality of their struggles and their power in numbers
- A refusal to accept violence against women and girls as a given
- A new time and a new way of being
Eve Ensler is a playwright and activist and the founder of V-Day, a global movement to end violence against women and girls.
