"Raise the Vibration" Featuring Voiceover by Thandie Newton & Words by Eve Ensler


To celebrate International Women’s Day, we are thrilled to announce the release of our latest short film – “Raise the Vibration” featuring voiceover by actor/activist/V-Day Board member Thandie Newton and words by Tony award winning playwright / One Billion Rising and V-Day founder Eve Ensler.

Directed by filmmaker Deborah Anderson (“My Revolution Lives In This Body”) and produced by One Billion Rising’s Ensler, Monique Wilson and Susan Celia Swan. The short reflects and celebrates the One Billion Rising campaign’s 2020 theme of “Raise The Vibration.” It honors all women (cisgender, transgender, and those who hold fluid identities that are subject to gender-based violence).

It is a call to honor women’s agency over their bodies and their right to be safe and free, a call to move our bodies so that the freedom and energy we shake loose becomes a new energy bringing in a new future. A call to see, cherish, nurture, respect and protect our Mother Earth as we are not separate from her. Her life is our life.
