One in three women across the planet will be beaten or raped during their lifetime. PLEASE NOTE: This event is scheuled for Tuesday, Feb. 14, 2017. (and not Feb. 13). That’s ONE BILLION WOMEN AND GIRLS. Every February, we rise to show our local communities and the world what one billion looks like and shine a light on the injustice that survivors most often face. This year we are rising in solidarity against the exploitation of women.
