With Thanks, We Share Our 2013 Annual Report - One Billion Rising!
The end of the most extraordinary year is almost upon us! Together with you, our amazing global team of activists, we created the largest mass action to end violence against women and girls in the history of humankind.
V-Day's 15th anniversary year was unprecedented in every respect. One Billion women, men, and youth in 207 countries were inspired to STRIKE, RISE, and DANCE to end violence against women and girls. Record numbers of V-Day events were produced. The fourth class of women graduated from the City of Joy and returned to their communities with confidence, skills and knowledge to lead. Safe houses, rape crises centers and sexual assault campus programs kept their doors open despite government shut downs and long odds, laws in many countries were changed, and the Violence Against Women Act was reauthorized in the US.
Our 2013 Annual Report - ONE BILLION RISING documents the magnitude of the incredible action that you made possible. We invite you to read it, explore and reflect on the power of our solidarity as we ROSE to end violence against women and girls.
In an effort to be sustainable, we are offering the report in an interactive online format. We hope you enjoy it.
