About The Event

"To turn the other cheek, that is, to remain silent in the face of injustice or mistreatment, has to be weighed very carefully. It is one thing to use passive resistance as a political tool as Gandhi taught masses of people to do, but it is quite another matter when women are encouraged or forced to be silent in order to survive an impossible situation of corrupt or unjust power in the family, community, or world. Then women are amputated from the wild nature.... There are times when it becomes imperative to release a rage that shakes the skies. There is a time- even though these times are very rare, there is definitely a time- to let loose all of the fire-power one has. It has to be in response to a serious offense; the offense has to be big and against the soul or spirit.... There is definitely a right time for full-bore rage. When women pay attention to the instinctual self... they know when it is time. Intuitively, they know, and they act. And it is right. Right as rain." -Clarissa Pinkola Estes ONE BILLION RISING EVENT at Ocean, Earth, Wind, and Fire 2/08/14: Women's Mala 12:30pm-2:30pm FREE and open to women only: Righteous Rage and the Global Call to Women.
