Every Feb­ru­ary, we rise – in coun­tries across the world – to show our local com­mu­ni­ties and the world what one bil­lion looks like and shine a light on the ram­pant impuni­ty and injus­tice that sur­vivors most often face.

We rise through dance to express joy and com­mu­ni­ty and cel­e­brate the fact that we have not been defeat­ed by this vio­lence. We rise to show we are deter­mined to cre­ate a new kind of con­scious­ness – one where vio­lence will be resist­ed until it is unthinkable.
