One Billion Rising

One in three women on the planet will be raped or beaten in her lifetime.

It’s not an even one-in-three across the board: if you’re a woman of colour, a trans woman, a woman with disability, you’re at far greater risk than more privileged women.

But we’re all still at risk.  And we’re all living our lives constantly conscious of that threat.

So today it’s V-Day, and it’s One Billion Rising.  Here’s the Facebook page for the Wellington event; here’s the website for the whole damn thing.

So what the fuck will you do today to stop violence against women?
