1 Billion Rising For Justice


ONE BILLION RISING FOR JUSTICE is an invitation to break free from confinement, obligation, shame, guilt, grief, pain, humiliation, rage, and bondage.
On 14 February 2013, one billion people in 207 countries rose and danced to demand an end to violence against women and girls.
Here a beautiful video mosaic of the world wide impressions from this day:

On 14 February 2014, the campaign is escalating the efforts, calling on women and men everywhere to RISE, RELEASE, DANCE, and demand JUSTICE!
ONE BILLION RISING FOR JUSTICE is a global call to women survivors of violence and those who love them to gather safely in community outside places where they are entitled to justice – courthouses, police stations, government offices, school administration buildings, work places, sites of environmental injustice, military courts, embassies, places of worship, homes, or simply public gathering places where women deserve to feel safe but too often do not.  It is a call to survivors to break the silence and release their stories – politically, spiritually, outrageously – through art, dance, marches, ritual, song, spoken word, testimonies and whatever way feels right.

This is what Justice looks like:

AIB
is a weekly sketch show from India's edgiest, politically incorrect comedy collective.
Every sexual assault case in India inspires a string of stupid and hateful remarks against women. This is AIB's response to those remarks.

 

"One Billion Will Rise for Justice" is a monologue for One Billion Rising for Justice written by Eve Ensler, the founder of the V-Day:

 

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.
IMAGINE, ONE BILLION WOMEN RELEASING THEIR STORIES, DANCING AND SPEAKING OUT AT THE PLACES WHERE THEY NEED JUSTICE, WHERE THEY NEED AN END TO VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN AND GIRLS.
JOIN US!
RISE. RELEASE. DANCE!
