Be there for the ONE BILLION RISING event on 14th Feb, 8pm.

Hi all,

We do hope that all of you have seen the mail announcing our event for ONE BILLION RISING on 14th Feb, 2013 @ 8pm.

The OBR videos with a community dance at twistntales

On 14th Feb 2013, at 8pm, twistntales will join with activists around the world for ONE BILLION RISING, the largest day of action in the history of V-Day, the global activist movement to end violence against women and girls.

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, twistntales will join activists, writers, thinkers, celebrities, and women and men across the world as we express their outrage, demand change, strike, dance, and RISE in defiance of the injustices women suffer, demanding an end at last to violence against women.

We're At the Precipice of a New World

YOUR PLEDGE is Needed To Take The Leap

We are only days away from One Billion Rising and couldn't be more excited! There are now 200 countries signed up to participate in this world wide event, along w...ith world leaders, celebrities, organizations, and activists who are ready to Strike, dance, RISE, proving that everyone is ready to say enough and end violence against women for good.

One Billion Rising is the beginning of the new world ignited by a new energy. It is not the end of our struggle but the escalation of it, and while we are all ready to shake the earth with our dancing on 14 February, we are asking everyone to make One Billion Rising more than just a single day of action.

By taking the One Billion Rising Pledge, and asking EVERYONE at your event to do the same, you are helping to finish what we have all started by making ending violence against women and girls

THE central issue locally, nationally, and internationally. The world is ready to shift and it begins with you. The One Billion revolution has started and with your pledge it will continue to grow.

Imagine a billion activated pledges. It starts with YOU!
