One Billion Rising
One Billion Rising is a global campaign to end violence against women, rise for justice, and promote gender equality. The campaign was initiated by playwright and activist Eve Ensler (known for her play The Vagina Monologues), and her organization V-Day in 2012. The "billion" refers to the UN statistic that one in three women will be raped or beaten in their lifetime, or about one billion women. In 2012, the One Billion Rising campaign culminated in the biggest mass global action to end violence against women ever with tens of thousands of events held in more than 190 countries.
