We want the world to witness our collective solidarity with the women of Afghanistan. HERE’S HOW!

Document and share everything you do for RISE FOR AND WITH THE WOMEN OF AFGHANISTAN. Share your photos, video and audio updates with the global audience!

For your RISING event(s), please share your photos, video and audio updates with the global audience so they can experience it as it happens – or as close to it! Before and during the events, utilize social media channels like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and Snapchat.

Tell the story of what’s happening using these channels. Be sure to tag us and use the official hashtags #RiseForAndWithWomenOfAfghanistan #StandWithWomenofAfghanistan to include your posts on our digital hub at onebillionrising.org and across our social channels for the world to see. The more we share, we spread the word and trend on social media platforms around the world, reaching even more people.

After your event, you can upload high quality images and videos to us in the form below

Tag us or post directly to our accounts:

Twitter: @vday
Instagram: @one_billion_rising, @vdayorg

NOTE: If you want to share your posts with the global audience, please be sure to make your Facebook and Instagram posts public.


Many of you are hosting your events online via Zoom. Please be sure to record your event and then upload it to our 2021 OBR Dropbox.


Please film your event using the highest resolution files available. Make sure you’re also keeping full-resolution versions of what you share – we’ll want to gather it after your event HERE.

Note – you will need to post a Public Filming Notice at your venue, and if you interview people about the rising, it would be wonderful if you can have them sign release forms so that we can use the footage for V-Day’s uses on our website, or film, etc.

Create a Snapchat geo-filter for your event:

Although Snapchat doesn’t offer global geo-filters, you can create custom on-demand local geo-filters for your events as low as $5/day at https://create.snapchat.com/

You can create your custom design after logging in, and get a price quote depending on your time range and location area.

Streaming your event LIVE:

In the last few years, streaming technology and the general public’s comfort with it has come a long way, making them much more accessible. Using the apps and platforms below you can now stream your event directly from your phone, tablet or computer. Capture the flashmob, an art piece, activists sharing why they RISE or the whole event live from your phone.

So if you want to broadcast the revolution in real time, here are some options:


These free and easy options have been used to broadcast intimate interviews to huge mobilizations. You can play the video directly into your community Facebook page or Twitter and Instagram account feeds. All you need is a dedicated person with a fully charged phone or tablet (and backup batteries). Additionally, a phone/tablet tripod or stick can be extremely useful to maintain a stable shot, especially for outdoor or long events.

IMPORTANT: Before broadcasting, make sure to change your Audience to “Public” so people outside of your network can view and share it.
