1 Billion Rising: Dance against violence

February 14, 2013 – 10:11 am
V Day, One Billion Rising

One Billion Rising: to support women.

Today is a worldwide action day to draw attention to the problem of violence against women.

All around the globe, events are being held where you can dance to show your support – they are called “risings”. It’s no coincidence that it’s being held on Valentine’s Day; the organisation behind it is called V-Day, and aims to raise awareness of violence against women. Twitter hashtags are #Vday and #1billionrising
