A clip from the One Billion Rising dance video

On Thursday 14 February at 1pm, we are taking part in One Billion Rising.

One Billion Rising is a global day of action to stop violence against women and girls. It’s a flashmob dance event and something everyone can get involved in..

One Billion Rising is:

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 being

And you can be involved in this amazing event! To take part in the flashdance, you can learn the routine by watching this videoΒ or come along along 14 February for 1pm at the Young Vic to see it in action.

See the One Billion RisingΒ website for full details of the event and other locations.
