 On 14 February 2013, one billion people in 207 countries rose and danced to demand an end to violence against women and girls.

On 14 February 2014*, we are escalating our efforts, calling on women and men everywhere to RISE, RELEASE, DANCE, and DEMAND JUSTICE!

ONE BILLION RISING FOR JUSTICE is a global call to women survivors of violence and those who love them to gather safely in community outside places where they are entitled to justice – courthouses, police stations, government offices, school administration buildings, work places, sites of environmental injustice, military courts, embassies, places of worship, homes, or simply public gathering places where women deserve to feel safe but too often do not.  It is a call to survivors to break the silence and release their stories – politically, spiritually, outrageously – through art, dance, marches, ritual, song, spoken word, testimonies and whatever way feels right.  READ MORE

As part of the 8 July launch of the new ONE BILLION RISING FOR JUSTICE campaign, V-Day is debuting a new short film called “Rising,” by South African filmmaker Tony Stroebel (“One Billion Rising,” “The Man Prayer,” “Break The Chain”). The film features global event footage from One Billion Rising 2013 and calls up the new campaign for justice.
