V-Day’s ONE BILLION RISING is Biggest Global Action Ever
To End Violence Against Women and Girls

Campaign Spread Across the Planet on 14 February 2013,
Tens of Thousands of Events Held in 207 Countries

From a Debate in UK Parliament to a Human Chain in Bangladesh, Dancing in Kabul and Tripoli to rallies in Steubenville, One Billion Rose in City Halls, Schools, Public Spaces, and More

“…and More” — Hey, that’s me! And to think I too was a splotch in this global rorschach! For a comprehensive look at the global impact of “One Billion Rising,” visit this press release from V-Day.

Way down the page you’ll find 12 points citing accomplishments of the rising. My favorites are #1 and #12:

1. Brought together people across movements and causes – mobilizing communities such as migrants, women in prison, domestic workers, urban poor, LGBTQI, farm workers, the disabled, and many more.

12. Generated the best collection of worldwide dance videos ever!
