About The Event
ONE BILLION RISING campaign began as a call to action based on the staggering statistic that 1 in 3 women on the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime. With the world population at 7 billion, this adds up to more that One Billion women and girls.
On February 14, 2013 One Billion people danced and rose in 207 countries to end violence against women and girls.
This year on February 14, 2014, we are escalating our efforts, calling on women and men everywhere to RISE, RELEASE, DANCE and demand JUSTICE.
Justice is about restoring the primacy of connection so that we understand that violence against women is not a personal problem but connected to other systemic injustices whether they be patriarchal, economic, racial, gender or environmental. Justice is resonant across all kinds of boundaries because the refusal to hold perpetrators of violence accountable is a global plague often an equal or sometimes worse trauma than the act of violence itself.
