A revolution of one billion

One Billion Rising PDF

Globally one in three women will be beaten or raped during her lifetime. That is the equivalent of one billion people, and this horrific fact forms the core of Eve Ensler’s One Billion Rising (OBR) campaign to end violence against women. Last year, 14 February,  one billion people in over 200 countries showed their support for the campaign, dancing together to, according to the OBR website, “demand an end to violence against women and girls”.

Last year I wrote a short feature-style article for Grazia SA about the campaign, and today I am sharing that story to mark the campaign a year on. Show your support on 14 February 2014 by joining one of thousands of OBR events happening around the globe: onebillionrising.org/events
