Ever want a Dance lesson from Debbie Allen (dance teacher in Fame) ?
It’s your lucky day, want to preform that dance with a group of people?
Well you have 6 days to get ready.
1billionrising is happening on the 14 of February.
Globally 1 in 3 women will be raped or beaten in her life time, that is 1 billion women.
ONE BILLION WOMEN VIOLATED IS AN ATROCITY
ONE BILLION WOMEN DANCING IS A REVOLUTION
On V-Day’s 15th Anniversary, 14 February 2013, we are inviting ONE BILLION women and those who love them to WALK OUT, DANCE, RISE UP, and DEMAND an end to this violence. ONE BILLION RISING will move the earth, activating women and men across every country. V-Day wants the world to see our collective strength, our numbers, our solidarity across borders.
What does ONE BILLION look like? On 14 February 2013, it will look like a REVOLUTION.
ONE BILLION RISING IS:
A global strike
An invitation to dance
A call to men and women to refuse to participate in the status quo until rape and rape culture ends
An act of solidarity, demonstrating to women the commonality of their struggles and their power in numbers
A refusal to accept violence against women and girls as a given
A new time and a new way of being
Events are happening all over the world, there are many happening here in Ireland,
join an event near you or use the tool kit to start up your own.
And the video of the song which is being used
“If I can’t dance – I don’t want to be part of your revolution.” Emma Goldman
