The fiercely talented, smart, and delightful Anne Hathaway graces the cover of the January issue of Glamour Magazine, sporting a limited-edition One Billion Rising tank top and talking with our own Eve Ensler about her support for our campaign to end violence against women and girls.
Eve Ensler: Tell me about One Billion Rising.
Anne Hathaway: It’s hard to wrap my head around the fact that a billion women have been raped or beaten, just the enormity of that. When I was in college, I’d heard that one in four women would be raped, and I thought, God, that means I must know someone who was raped. Sure enough, I found out a week later that a friend had been. A billion is too big because one is too big.
Eve Ensler: We’re calling on one billion people to rise up and dance on February 14. Why do you dance?
Anne Hathaway: When I think back to some of the most fun nights of my life, it was just me out dancing without a care in the world. It’s a release, an outlet. And I’m a firm believer that we can tap into a collective energy and consciousness; on the 14th, even if you’re in a field dancing by yourself, you’re going to know you’re not alone. That’s something I hope we can carry forward as we resolve to protect ourselves and our sisters.
