One Billion Rising is an international coalition of campaigners speaking out for action to tackle violence against girls and women across the world. 160 countries and over 27,000 individuals have signed already. Together with over 9,200 organisations, that include V-Day event beneficiaries, we are already reaching over 61 million people. It is taking place on 14 February 2013 to celebrate the 15th Anniversary of V-Day, the global movement to end violence against women and girls.
The campaign is gaining momentum nationally with workshops taking place across the country, media coverage from The Guardian and support coming from many public figures, from actors and comedians to politicians to everyday readers.
