V-Day Annual Report

ONE BILLION RISING: RISE FOR REVOLUTION

2016 was a revolutionary, evolutionary year for V-Day, One Billion Rising and City of Joy. Your solidarity and support made it possible!

As our work unfolded against a backdrop of violence, inequity, and patriarchy across the globe, the year was another poignant chapter in the evolution of our movement. We are so pleased to share our Annual Report, Rise For Revolution, with you. In these pages, you will see the work of global grassroots activists putting art and activism at the forefront, pushing boundaries and engaging in dialogue that holds everyone accountable to an intersectional lens. It is breathtaking.

Across 200 countries, One Billion Rising, the City of Joy and our V-Day College and Community benefit events made visible the volatile and often unseen connections between violence against women and economic, environmental, racial, and gender injustice on the grassroots level and in the media.

We formed new and lasting coalitions between existing groups and individuals, both throughout the women’s movement and also among the growing peoples’ movements covering diverse sectors. And we showed that there is nothing more powerful than global solidarity as it makes all of us safer in our outspokenness, braver in what we are willing to do.

The pages that follow are a glimpse into the change that took place on the ground, as well as where we are headed. Your generosity, trust and vision make our movement possible.
