1 Billion Rising

One billion women and those who love them are invited to WALK OUT, DANCE, RISE UP, and DEMAND an end to violence. ONE BILLION RISING will move the earth, activating women and men across every country. 

Show the world our collective strength, our numbers, our solidarity across borders.

What does ONE BILLION look like? 

On February 14, 2013, it will look like a REVOLUTION.

  • A global strike
  • An invitation to dance
  • A call to men and women to refuse to participate in the status quo until rape and rape culture ends
  • An act of solidarity, demonstrating to women the commonality of their struggles and their power in numbers
  • A refusal to accept violence against women and girls as a given
  • A new time and a new way of being
