Where Will you be on V- day 2013? I will be part of the flash mob at large mall in my region. Rising up and dancing, standing with one billion strong around the world against violence against women. Speak out, and speak out so that women’s rights everyday and during childbirth are respected. Where ever you are, please join in; dance, sing, take 5 minutes of silence to send your thoughts, blessings and intentions, as together we make a difference.
Let’s all join together to dance for girls and women on February 14th, 2013, V-Day’s 15th Anniversary, join one billion women and those who love them to walk out, DANCE, RISE UP, AND DEMAND an end to this violence. One Billion Rising is a promise that we will rise up with women and men worldwide to say, “Enough! The violence ends now.”
These are no ordinary times, many circumstances we thought would never change are changing, the ground is shifting. As birth workers we know that we make a difference one birth at a time. I am humbled to think of the energy that will be created on V-Day when we are dancing in 168 countries for love, respect, dignity and peace for all women and girls.
