One Billion Rising: Zumba

SRC Court 1

One Billion Rising is the biggest mass action to end violence against women in human history. The campaign, launched on Valentine’s Day 2012, began as a call to action based on the staggering statistic that one in three women on the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime. With the world population at seven billion, this adds up to more than ONE BILLION WOMEN AND GIRLS. Now, every February, women rise in hundreds of countries across the world to show local communities and the world what one billion looks like and to shine a light on the rampant injustice that survivors most often face. Women rise through dance to express joy in the community and to celebrate the fact that they have not been defeated by the violence.

For the third year in a row One Billion Rising has chosen the theme of "Revolution." Global coordinators have chosen to continue this broader theme as it can be expressed in the "for who" and "for what." It is broad enough to include all issues, and also particular enough to be specific about issues that communities want to highlight and raise. Essentially, the "Revolution" theme helps sustain the focus of what One Billion Rising is, a call for change. This year, One Billion Rising's campaign also focuses on rising in solidarity against the exploitation of women.
