Held on 14th February 2013, ONE BILLION RISING was an invitation to one billion women and those who love them to walk out, dance, rise up, and demand an end to this violence. It was:
- 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 beingÂ (Source)Â
