Rising: Namibia Rising by Hannah Tarindwa

Published: 18 February 2014

The RISE in Namibia was a success, as we had the vagina monologues.

The women in Namibia are ready to speak against impunity in the justice system… We met women between the ages of 18 and 35 and they are willing to take part in the continuous programs to uplift women who are being killed on a daily basis within the country.

We discussed having a mentor-ship program with the assistance and guidance and experiences of our other One Billion Rising Sisters, we believe in the next two years we could help reduce the death prevalence due to Gender Based Violence by empowering women as well as soliciting assistance of people in Civil Society, government and the legislation. We also had a few men support us and they are willing to continue rising with us!
