What can we do? Each of us has a voice. Let’s use it. Check out the One Billion Rising website:
Join V-Day on 02.14.13 in a global strike to demand an end to violence.
Feb 14, 2013 is the 15th Anniversary of V-Day, the non-profit that began using The Vagina Monologues the ground-breaking play by Eve Ensler to raise awareness and money to end violence against women.I’ve been following V-Day since first meeting Sally Fisher, one of its co-founder, in the mid-1990’s when she came to look into the possibility of staging The Vagina Monologues in Pakistan. It was performed some years later in Pakistan with local casts in various cities, in English — before invited audiences, but still – a courageous move.On 02.14.13 V-Day invites us to be part of “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.”
Thank you V-Day. This is the least we can do.
