One billion women and girls all over the world will be beaten or raped in her lifetime. One Billion Rising (www.onebillionrising.org) wants to break that cycle and end violence against women worldwide. An official organization started 15 years ago, today’s Valentine’s Day (V-Day) worldwide event promises to expand the message in villages, towns, cities and countries around the world.
Our special guest today is Boston based well known playwright Jacqui Parker, who is producing a special play that will debut this evening in commemoration of V-Day. “And Still I Rise” is a dramatic presentation to celebrate our power to stop violence against women, with two performances that will take place at Bethel AME Church in Boston.
About V-Day V-Day is a global activist movement to end violence against women and girls that raises funds and awareness through benefit productions of Playwright/Founder Eve Ensler's award winning play The Vagina Monologues and other artistic works. In 2012, over 5,800 V-Day benefit events took place produced by volunteer activists in the U.S. and around the world, educating millions of people about the reality of violence against women and girls.
To date, the V-Day movement has raised over $90 million and educated millions about the issue of violence against women and the efforts to end it, crafted international educational, media and PSA campaigns, reopened shelters, and funded over 14,000 community-based anti-violence programs and safe houses in Democratic Republic of Congo, Haiti, Kenya, South Dakota, Egypt and Iraq. Over 300 million people have seen a V-Day benefit event in their community. V-Day has received numerous acknowledgements including Worth Magazine's 100 Best Charities, Marie Claire Magazine's Top Ten Charities, one of the Top-Rated organizations on Philanthropedia/Guidestar and Great Nonprofits. V-Day's newest campaign is ONE BILLION RISING which will culminate on 021413 with a global action worldwide. www.vday.org
