New V-Day effort, ‘One Billion Rising,’ aims to mobilize 1 billion globally against violence from The Washington Post, 2/14/12

Tuesday, February 14, 2012

The article reports, “Eve Ensler wants a billion people around the globe to stand together against violence. Actually, she wants them to do more than stand: She wants them to dance. ‘The Vagina Monologues’ author says more needs to be done to change attitudes and realities when it comes to violence against women and girls around the world. She cites a United Nations statistic that says one in three women will be raped or beaten in her lifetime. On a planet with 7 billion people, that’s more than a billion women. V-Day, the anti-violence movement Ensler founded 14 years ago, is launching a yearlong initiative Tuesday. ‘One Billion Rising’ encourages people worldwide to walk out of work, school or wherever they are next Valentine’s Day and dance together in solidarity against violence.”
