One Billion Rising

RISE! RESIST! UNITE! Once again, the theme of SOLIDARITY remains the focus of One Billion Rising 2018. The unprecedented exploitation and poverty ravaging most of the world is becoming harder and impossible to ignore. Suffering has reached new heights and this year OBR is seeing a new, dynamic and radical militancy and vibrancy that is opposing and rising against such repression and oppression. A focus continues to remain on “Exploitation” – because women across the globe are suffering from the reign of neo-liberalism that has worsened social and economic conditions for women. Therefore New Light Kolkata rose in SOLIDARITY!
