Watch the wonderful interview in full HERE: One Billion Rising Global Director Monique Wilson was interviewed by Karen Davila on ANC’s “Headstart” morning news. 

Monique discusses the structure of One Billion Rising, a self-directed grassroots movement, how we measure success/change/impact and an in-depth look at the risings in the Philippines.

From ANC: On February 14 last year, one billion people in 207 countries rose and danced to demand an end to violence against women and girls. Over 10,000 events took place on the ground in what was considered the biggest mass action in human history. This year, they’re bringing efforts up a notch to call on woman and men everywhere to rise, release, dance, and demand justice! “One Billion Rising for Justice” is a global call to women survivors of violence and those who love them to gather safely in community.
