About One Billion Rising’s Campaign (excerpt)
As we come into our 7th year of One Billion Rising, we are faced with bigger challenges. To end violence against women, we must commit ourselves to a deeper examination of violence in all its forms. Along with sexual and physical violence, we must also look at systemic violence in economic, political, socio-cultural, environmental and ideological spheres.
