One Billion Rising Revolution

Dear V-Friends & Risers,

2015 was a revolutionary, evolutionary year for V-Day and One Billion Rising. Your solidarity and support made it possible!

Activists worldwide called for system change towards ending violence against women and girls. They staged plays, risings and events, rose in the streets, changing laws, consciousness and culture with an impact that is breathtaking and powerful.

It is our honor to share the 2015 Annual Report. These pages are a snapshot of those global activities and an invitation to join us in 2016.

This year, our V-Day campaigns expanded the dialogue around sexual violence as activists raised funds and awareness through performances of The Vagina Monologues and A Memory, A Monologue, A Rant and A Prayer from a prison in upstate New York to a theater in Tehran. The plays catalyzed important conversations and inspired new works of art.

City of Joy and V-World Farm continue to blossom and grow in the Democratic Republic of Congo, transforming pain to power amidst ongoing conflict in the region. The farm is going even deeper, transforming pain into planting, healing the body and the earth.

In its third year, One Billion Rising called for Revolution, to escalate tectonic global change. It was stunning to see how the call resonated around the world. Never have we seen such diversity — children, men, older people, LGTBQI, religious leaders, people of all abilities, farmers, workers, NGOs, presidents and prime ministers. Never have we seen such creativity; the movement continues to been led by art, theater, music, dancing, poetry, drumming because that is where revolution is activated.

The report is available in an interactive online format.
