One Billion Rising activists are taking to the streets across the globe amplifying some of the most pressing issues that intersect with violence against all women and girls (cisgender, transgender, and those who hold fluid identities that are subject to gender-based violence). Risings are Raising the Vibration, amplifying the voices of survivors, youth, and communities globally, making lasting impact through creative vision and voice.
We’ve begun a global schedule of events, and will be adding more – check it out here (list in formation).

Women Workers ROSE in NYC This Week
“When I worked in a Michelin Star restaurant, I would have some customers who would ask me to sit on their lap. I would have male co-workers, who were also my superiors, who would flirt or try to get me to sleep with them,” said Carmen LoBue, actress and member of Time’s Up.

NEW! Mujer Valiente/Like A Woman Spanish Language Video Released
“Mujer Valiente/Like a Woman” are part of V-Day’s initiative to create provocative art pieces that inspire people to act.
“Many of us young people believe there’s no such thing as misogyny or gender-based violence anymore, when really it’s as strong as ever. Every day there are new cases of missing women, many sold, murdered, or victims of violence at home. It is so important that we create consciousness and awareness that these are real and actual problems that cannot be ignored. It’s an honor to be a voice for this amazing cause.” – Kike Jiménez, singer of “Mujer Valiente.”
We invite men everywhere to join the campaign, upload your own “Like a Woman” and “Mujer Valiente” tributes, reflecting your appreciation for the women in your life while also considering what it means to be a man in a world where one in three women are directly affected by sexual violence.
