No means No !
One in three women on the planet is raped or beaten in her lifetime. That is ONE BILLION WOMEN violated. One billion daughters, mothers, grandmothers, sisters, lovers and friends.
On 14Th February 2013, V-Day's 15Th Anniversary, we are inviting ONE BILLION women and those who love them to WALK OUT, DANCE, RISE UP, and DEMAND an end to this violence.
ONE BILLION RISING will move the earth, activating women and men to dance across every country.Granted, life is a mystery we all must live to solve, and the fact that there are no guarantees for no one.
In addition to eventually to realize that life is no rose garden, for of it was, you would still have to beware of the sharp thorns on the stems of these beautiful flowers, (Happy Valentine's Day).
V-Day is a global activist movement to end violence against women and girls that raises funds and awareness through benefit productions of Playwright/Founder Eve Ensler's award winning play The Vagina Monologues and other artistic works.
In 2012, over 5,800 V-Day benefit events took place produced by volunteer activists in the U.S. and around the world, educating millions of people about the reality of violence against women and girls.
To date, the V-Day movement has raised over $90 million and educated millions about the issue of violence against women and the efforts to end it, crafted international educational, media and PSA campaigns, reopened shelters, and funded over 14,000 community-based anti-violence programs and safe houses in Democratic Republic of Congo, Haiti, Kenya, South Dakota, Egypt and Iraq.
Over 300 million people have seen a V-Day benefit event in their community.However, one thing each and every one of us are ordainly given, is the fact that we deserve what we are able to give, no more and NO LESS !While abuse comes in many, many forms, from child abuse, bullying, mental, physical abusive relationships, and unnecessary racist misunderstandings, the sad fact is that there is a growing number of innocent victims without voices , who need your help to 'Break the Chains of Pain' !
V-Day wants the world to see our collective strength, our numbers and our solidarity across borders. Join V-Day and ONE BILLION RISING today and SAY NO to violence against women and girls.
