TAKE ACTION: #BringBackOurGirls - "We Are Not Going Anywhere" by Barbara Mhangami-Ruwende

Two weeks ago, 234 teenage girls were kidnapped in the Nigerian city of Bornu while taking their exams. It is assumed that the girls were taken by Boko Haram, a local Islamic extremist group whose name means "western education is forbidden."

It is feared that the girls have been sold into marriage to the militants and some have been moved to nearby countries of Cameroon and Chad. The global movement of activists behind #BringBackOurGirls and countless One Billion Rising organizers and participants have been working tirelessly to bring the plight of the girls to the world's attention.

One Billion Rising for Justice Global Coordinator (Southern Africa) Barbara Mhangami-Ruwende shares what some activists are doing around the world, and calls on all of us to:

"Make a RESOUNDING RISING NOISE this Sunday, 11 May, and let the world leaders know that we are not going anywhere, that we will not stop until they #BringBackOurGirls!"
