1 Billion rising against violence with Mr dod and Powerhoop!
Great event for a worthy cause, and a fantastic turnout despite the rain and cold in Norwich today. Here's what is was all about (from norwichrising):
14th February 2013 is V-Day. One billion women and those who love them across the globe will strike, rise and dance to demand an end to violence against women.
Our plan in Norwich is simple. We'll have a mass dance outside the Forum at 1pm. We hope this will inspire 20,000 women and those who love them across the city to dance too. Why?
ONE IN THREE WOMEN ON THE PLANET WILL BE RAPED OR BEATEN IN HER LIFETIME.
ONE BILLION WOMEN VIOLATED IS AN ATROCITY
ONE BILLION WOMEN DANCING IS A REVOLUTION
ONE BILLION RISING will move the earth, activating women and men across every country. V-Day wants the world to see our collective strength, our numbers, our solidarity across borders.
