One Billion Rising 2019 Starts Tomorrow In Second Life


Preview of OBR 2019

The 7th annual Second Life One Billion Rising event starts at 12am SLT on Thursday 14th February 2019. The event will be held on four OBR regions on the map and it’s expected there will be a large gathering this year. The event lasts for 24 hours featuring many DJs, performances, poetry and much more.

The main stage is central of the regions surrounded by an area of art installations and informal exhibits. It’s definitely worth checking it all out.

About OBR

ONE BILLION RISING began as a call to action based on the staggering statistic that 1 in 3 women on the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime. With the world population at 7 billion, this adds up to more than ONE BILLION WOMEN AND GIRLS.

Every February, we rise – in hundreds of 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.

And we here in Second Life can be part of this global movement.

One Billion Rising 2015 in Second Life


The third annual One Billion Rising event will take place on Saturday 14th February 2015 in Second Life according to the official One Billion Rising of SL blog. To mark this occasion there will be a four region stage where around 200 avatars can dance together. There will be live performance acts during the 24 hour period, art exhibits, poetry events and storytelling events.

This event is to raise awareness to end the violence against women and girls around the world. It’s almost time to Rise, Release, Dance and demand Justice. Just to point out this event is not a raise money event.

Change can happen if…WE ACT NOW. AND WE ACT TOGETHER.

About One Billion Rising 

ONE BILLION RISING began as a call to action based on the staggering statistic that 1 in 3 women on the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime. With the world population at 7 billion, this adds up to more than ONE BILLION WOMEN AND GIRLS.

ONE BILLION RISING FOR JUSTICE is a call to women, men, and youth around the world to gather safely on 14 February 2014 outside places where they are entitled to justice – court houses, police stations, government offices, school administration buildings, work places, sites of environmental injustice, military courts, embassies, places of worship, homes, or simply public gathering places where women deserve to feel safe but too often do not.

In 2013, one billion women and men shook the earth through dance to end violence against women and girls. On 14 February 2014 we called on women and men everywhere to harness their power and imagination to rise for justice.

And in 2015, we are calling for a revolution for change.

Imagine, one billion women releasing their stories, dancing, drumming, and speaking out for changes to see an end to violence against women and girls.

And we here in Second Life can be part of this global movement.

One Billion Rising for Justice in Second Life 2015
On February 14, 2014, men and women in Second Life will join activists, writers, thinkers, celebrities, and people across the world to Rise for Revolution as a show of unity, individual strength, and the need for change.

The Second Life event will feature a four-region stage where 200 people can come together to dance, surrounded by an area of art installations, an arena for poetry and dramatic productions, and informational exhibits. A variety of performers will play over the 24-hour period and poetry and dramatic events will be held at different times, enabling people all over the world to attend this virtual event no matter their timezone. The regions will have a General maturity rating to allow all residents an opportunity to participate. Pictures are welcome on the event’s Flickr group.

The objective of the event is to raise awareness, not to raise funds; however, information about real-world organisations will be available for those wishing to donate.

We will be announcing the sponsors for One Billion Rising shortly.
