In 2013, We Shook The Earth
In 2014, We Escalate Our Efforts & RISE FOR JUSTICE
In 2013, one billion women and men shook the earth through dance.
This year, on 14 February 2014 we are calling on women and men everywhere to harness their power and imagination to rise for justice.
Imagine, one billion women releasing their stories, dancing, and speaking out at the places where they need justice, where they need to end violence against women and girls.
RISE. RELEASE. DANCE!

WATCH NEW SHORT FILM "RISING" by V-Day & Tony Stroebel, featuring global event footage from One Billion Rising 2013 >
ONE BILLION RISING FOR JUSTICE is a call to women, men, and youth around the world to gather safely on 14 February 2014 outside places where they are entitled to justice - court houses, police stations, government offices, school administration buildings, work places, sites of environmental injustice, military courts, embassies, places of worship, homes, or simply public gathering places where women deserve to feel safe but too often do not.
"Our stories have been buried, denied, erased, altered, and minimized by patriarchal systems that allow impunity to reign. Justice begins when we speak, release, and acknowledge the truth in solidarity and community. ONE BILLION RISING FOR JUSTICE is an invitation to break free from confinement, obligation, shame, guilt, grief, pain, humiliation, rage, and bondage. It is a call to bring on revolutionary justice."
- Monique Wilson, One Billion Rising Director
