February 14, 2013, a Valentine’s Day like no other — One Billion Rising — one billion women, one billion dancers, coming together across the Earth to break the chain of violence that enslaves them. It is Time. We are the ones we have been waiting for. Wake up! Rise up! Stand up! The women united will never be defeated! Strike, dance, rise in your community and demand an end to violence. One in three women will be raped or assaulted in their lifetime. Dance! One billion women dancing is a revolution!

Go to One Billion Rising and see how you can start or join an event in your area. There will be events EVERYWHERE, yo! Join in! Rise up and dance to end rape and violence against women!

I would also like to see One Billion Sitting — one billion men sitting down and shutting up. It is time to make amends.
