One Billion Rising

Recent horrifying statistics show that one in three women globally will be raped, beaten or severely violated in their lifetime. That's 1 billion women.

This short film by playwright and activist Eve Ensler and South African filmmaker Tony Stroebel was shot in nine countries and gives a glimpse into what organizers of the One Billion Rising campaign hope will happen on February 14, 2013, a global day of action to demand an end to violence against women.

There are already thousands of events scheduled in more than 160 countries. Sign up today, find a gathering near you, invite your friends to join the campaign and check out OneBillionRising.org for videos, news updates, information on joining and supporting the campaign, and much more.
