ACTIVISTS WORLDWIDE MOBILIZE , ENGAGE , AWAKEN AND JOIN PEOPLE ACROSS THE PLANET TO END VIOLENCE AGAINST ALL WOMEN AND GIRLS .
1 in 3 women across the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime . That ’ s ONE BILLION WOMEN AND GIRLS . Every February , we rise – in countries across the world – to show our local communities and the world what one billion looks like and shine a light on the rampant impunity and injustice that survivors most often face . We rise through dance to express joy and community and celebrate the fact that we have not been defeated by this violence . We rise to show we are determined to create a new kind of consciousness – one where violence will be resisted until it is unthinkable .
