“One billion women violated is an atrocity. One billion women dancing is a revolution.”

THERE ARE CURRENTLY 197 countries signed up to participate in the One Billion Rising event this Feb 14. One in three women on the planet are raped or beaten in their lifetime. Women and men all over the globe are gathering to make change to the current rape and violence culture.

As a human, a woman, and someone who has experienced violence, I too will dance and rise up with my community as an act of solidarity and to demand an end to violence.

What is your reason to rise?
