About The Event

Let's get ready to shake things up Melbourne! We will be gathering on the St Kilda Foreshore [in front of the sea baths] to dance, drum and spark a revolution - of consciousness - changing community attitudes to violence towards and exploitation of women & girls AND inspiring action - for individuals & communities to rise up and say NO MORE: violence, abuse, exploitation, disempowerment, sexism or misogyny. The past two years have brought thousands to Fed Square - we have danced, we have been moved, the community has been educated - hopefully, we have contributed to the surge in community awareness around the right of all women to feel safe and empowered. In 2015 we will disrupt the flow of everyday life by the sea side! We will shake up Saturday 14 of February and flash mob our way in to the hearts & minds of Melbourne - join us!
