Jane Fonda Introduces One Billion Rising to West Hollywood

 
V-Day Board member Jane Fonda joined One Billion Rising regional coordinator Lindsey Horvath at the West Hollywood City Council meeting to introduce One Billion Rising during the public hearing portion of the evening.

  • ONE IN THREE WOMEN ON THE PLANET WILL BE RAPED OR BEATEN IN HER LIFETIME.
  • ONE BILLION WOMEN VIOLATED IS AN ATROCITY
  • ONE BILLION WOMEN DANCING IS A REVOLUTION

On V-Day’s 15th Anniversary, 2.14.13, we are inviting ONE BILLION women and those who love them to WALK OUT, DANCE, RISE UP, and DEMAND an end to this violence. ONE BILLION RISING will move the earth, activating women and men across every country. V-Day wants the world to see our collective strength, our numbers, our solidarity across borders.

What does ONE BILLION look like? On February 14th, 2013, it will look like a REVOLUTION.

ONE BILLION RISING IS:

  • A global strike
  • An invitation to dance
  • A call to men and women to refuse to participate in the status quo until rape and rape culture ends
  • An act of solidarity, demonstrating to women the commonality of their struggles and their power in numbers
  • A refusal to accept violence against women and girls as a given
  • A new time and a new way of being

Jane implored Council members to promote the initiative within the city – “This movement has already raised $90 million across the world,” Fonda said.

“Where better than West Hollywood to be the first city on this earth to sign in support of this action.”
