About The Event
I would like to plan a 'one billion rising event' in Copenhagen, Denmark in 2020.
I live here, but I am Italian and Belgian. I have two girls aged 11 and 8 and they are both passionate readers of women's stories. I want to raise awareness because I worked here as a volunteer for the Danish Red Cross in the Women Network helping women and children subject to violence at home.
Denmark is known for all the statistics about social welfare and happiness, but I can tell you that there are thousands of women and children, Danish nationals or resident, subject to domestic violence every day and that has to stop! I want to raise awareness and a one billion rising event in Copenhagen would help that.
