About The Event

1 in 3 women across the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime. That’s ONE BILLION WOMEN AND GIRLS. Every February, we rise – in hundreds of countries across the world – to show our local communities and the world what one billion looks like and shine a light on the rampant impunity and injustice that survivors most often face.  We rise through dance to express joy and community and and celebrate the fact that we have not been defeated by this violence. We rise to show we are determined to create a new kind of consciousness – one where violence will be resisted until it is unthinkable. THIS YEAR, WE ARE RISING IN SOLIDARITY AGAINST THE EXPLOITATION OF WOMEN. So we are all going to gather at Piece of Sky - Creative Arts Therapy and Counseling 創意藝術治療及心理輔導 and dance, making a statment to stand up and STOP VIOLENCE against women (all human actaully) We'll be dancing nad filming it to upload on the One Billion Rising website and other social meda to raise awareness. Don't worry you do not need any dance background/ training as it is NOT about how well you dance but the cause. Register at https://goo.gl/forms/K9maOfY8FePqgFuI2
