One Billion Rising

This year, One Billion Rising Revolution is giving sharper focus and visibility to the exploitation of women, and to harnessing even stronger global solidarity to demand an end to violence in all forms.
Because there can be no REVOLUTION without SOLIDARITY. We cannot call for system change - change of mindsets; change of structures that keep violence in place; change in consciousness, awareness and understanding of violence; the end of patriarchal values and cultures; change in policies that affect women economically, socially, sexually, physically, emotionally; the end of the revolving patterns of control, oppression and exploitation - ALONE. Solidarity is a radical connection. This revolution demands commitment, courage, trust, belief and LOVE. Solidarity against the exploitation of women. RISE! DISRUPT! CONNECT!
