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 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.

To the entire staff, Chain Breaker dancers and supporters – thank you for your hard work and time.
Over two days 110 women dancers from within Second Life took part in making a brand new video for the upcoming One Billion Rising event in Second Life for 2016. Many others donated their time to make this video possible. Great work! 🙂
