Walk Out, Dance, Rise Up & Demand an End to Violence Against Women

On February 14, 2013 we will be joining one billion sisters around the world in demanding an end to violence against women. Join us at Farragut Square from 12-2 pm. Wear red and support women.

From One Billion Rising we know that:

ONE IN THREE WOMEN ON THE PLANET WILL BE RAPED OR BEATEN IN HER LIFETIME.*

ONE BILLION WOMEN VIOLATED IS AN ATROCITY

ONE BILLION WOMEN DANCING IS A REVOLUTION

On 14 February 2013, One Billion Rising is inviting ONE BILLION women and those who love them to WALK OUT, DANCE, RISE UP, and DEMAND an end to this violence. ONE BILLION RISING will move the earth, activating women and men across every country. V-Day wants the world to see our collective strength, our numbers, our solidarity across borders.

What does ONE BILLION look like? On 14 February 2013, it will look like a REVOLUTION.
