one billion rising

We invite you to “Rise Up Seattle", a One Billion Rising event on February 14th. As co-founder of the local chapter of the Women’s Network for a Sustainable Future (WNSF), Cynthia is happy to announce that WNSF is a co-sponsor of this exciting event.

ONE BILLION RISING began as a call to action based on the staggering statistic that 1 in 3 women on the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime.  With the world population at 7 billion, this adds up to more than ONE BILLION WOMEN AND GIRLS.  On February 14, 2013, V-Day’s 15th anniversary, we will join activists, writers, thinkers, celebrities, and women and men across the world as we demand change, strike, dance, and RISE UP in defiance of the injustices women suffer, demanding an end at last to violence against women.

“When we started V-Day 14 years ago, we had the outrageous idea that we could end violence against women,” said Eve Ensler. “Now, we are both stunned and thrilled to see that this global action is truly escalating and gaining force, with union workers, parliament members, celebrities, and women of all backgrounds coming forward to join the campaign. When we come together on February 14, 2013 to demand an end to violence against women and girls it will be a truly global voice that will rise up.”
