One in three women on the planet will be raped or beaten in her lifetime.
That is one billion women.
In 2013, one billion women and men shook the earth through dance to end violence against women and girls. This year, on 14 February, 2014 we are calling on women and men everywhere to harness their power and imagination to rise for justice.
ONE BILLION RISING FOR JUSTICE, will focus the world’s attention on the issue of justice for all survivors of violence, and ending the rampant impunity.
V-Day and South African filmmaker Tony Stroebel (One Billion Rising, The Man Prayer, Break The Chain) have come together again with the release of the short film, “Rising.” The film features video from risings around the world on 14 February 2013 and calls up the new campaign for justice.
Rise. Release. Dance!
