RISE 2019: From a Campaign to a Way of Life

Thousands of Risings calling for an end to violence against all women and girls, led by grassroots activists in every country, are happening around the globe – and will continue through International Women’s Day, 8 March.

Rising in the streets putting their bodies and lives on the line. RISING to end sexual violence in all its forms – rape, battery, incest, sexual harassment, female genital mutilation, sexual slavery and trafficking, child marriage, femicide, sexual-gender and reproductive oppression and violence towards LGBTQIA+ communities – and RISING to end the systemic violence, oppression and exploitation of all women and girls (cisgender, transgender, and those who hold fluid identities that are subject to gender based violence) in the context of capitalism, colonization, racism, imperialism, environmental plunder and war.

This year activists were braver, went deeper, studied, listened, asked difficult questions, engaged, took action & pushed themselves out of their comfort zones physically and intellectually. Because Rising is no longer a campaign it is a way of life.
