One Billion Rising is a global movement to end violence against women and girls. Its name acknowledges that over one billion women and girls will experience sexual violence in their lifetime.
From the One Billion Rising Website:
ONE BILLION RISING: RISE FOR REVOLUTION Listen! Act! Rise!
For the fourth year of the campaign, the One Billion Rising's global coordinators chose to continue the theme of Revolution as an escalation of the first three stages: One Billion Rising (2013), One Billion Rising for Justice (2014), and One Billion Rising: Revolution (2015).
We've danced. We've demanded justice. We've demanded changes. This year we are radicalising our actions—enlarging, deepening, and expanding the revolution. Let's continue to radically shift consciousness and be braver, bolder, more creative and determined with our actions. Focus on the most marginalized women and girls to bring about true, long lasting change.
