A Message from Eve Ensler...
February 1, 2013
Join CODEPINK and over 10,000 organizations in 193 countries for One Billion Rising, a global day of action to strike, dance and rise on February 14 to end rape and gender violence!
Tell us why you are rising!
In recent years alone, massive numbers of women and girls – and sometimes men and boys –
have suffered not only the physical trauma of rape and gender violence
in war and other conflict situations, but also the shame and stigma that
often leaves survivors suffering in silence.
Last night, Eve Ensler shared her excitement with us...
the whole world is rising
beyond our wildest dreams
hip hop artists
monks and priests and nuns and members of parliaments
dalit women and tribal women and educators and dancers
migrant workers and nurses teachers and gynecologists
aboriginal women first nation women..."

The waters of peace and justice are nurturing the seeds of change. All across the world, we can create ripples of change. Join One Billion women and the men who love them as CODEPINK turns the ripples into waves. It's time to break our chains!
Rise with us on February 14th!
Tell us why you're rising!

Let's Strike, Dance, and Rise together!
In peace and nonviolence,
Alli, Holly, Jodie, Lachelle, Medea, Nancy, Sam and Tighe
P.S.- During the Presidential Inauguration in Washington DC, CODEPINK brought the message of One Billion Rising in a Yes We Can-Can End Violence flashmob as people from all over trickled into town for the Inaugural balls. In San Francisco, hundreds joined the biggest flashmob dance ritual to break the chains of violence against women and girls. Join the movement on 2/14!
