One Billion Rising

One in three women on Mother Earth will be raped or beaten in her lifetime. I’m the one standing next to you.

One Billion Rising asks that we end this violence toward women. In the United States we should end it by supporting victims, not blaming them. By listening to women, not silencing them. By advocating for reproductive freedom, not limiting it.

Maybe one in three women you know have suffered, often in silence. This is a global issue, not a trivial one.

Today I dance for women everywhere, one of the billion rising.
