V-DAY - 1 Billion Rising - Revolution 2020
V-Day is a global activist movement to end violence against women and girls. V-Day is a catalyst that promotes creative events to increase awareness, raise money, and revitalize the spirit of existing anti-violence organizations. V-Day generates broader attention for the fight to stop violence against women and girls, including rape, battery, incest, female genital mutilation (FGM), and sex slavery.
Thousands of Risings calling for an end to violence against all women and girls, led by grassroots activists in every country, took place around the globe.
Rising in the streets putting their bodies and lives on the line. RISING to end sexual violence in all its forms - rape, battery, incest, sexual harassment, female genital mutilation, sexual slavery and trafficking, child marriage, femicide, sexual-gender and reproductive oppression and violence towards LGBTQIA+ communities - and RISING to end the systemic violence, oppression and exploitation of all women and girls (cisgender, transgender, and those who hold fluid identities that are subject to gender based violence) in the context of capitalism, colonization, racism, imperialism, environmental plunder and war.
