One Billion Rising

www.onebillionrising.org

One Billion Rising, is a cultural and social revolution determined to end abuse against women. One Billion Rising is a vision of a world of women, across boundaries coming together, to celebrate and honour their womanhood...

... dancing as one, on the same day, for the same purpose ...

....To stand up for the world they wish to live in, a world that is a safe, cherishing, nurturing place where women can be their fully sexual, intellectual, spiritual, emotional selves without threat or terror, without intimidation or harassment.

On Thursday 14th February 2013

Join in a worldwide "feminist tsunami" by dancing ...

... to show awareness and love for our sisters the world over.

We are inviting women to walk out of their homes, their offices,

their jobs, their schools ....and dance for three quarters of an hour!

Bring your Body and be a Moving Voice and Spirit for this Revolution!

Here's your location to dance for yourself and every woman,

near to you & worldwide, in the Crest area:

Hillcrest Library Hall, Delamore Rd

Nia dance teachers throughout South Africa and in HQ in Portland, Oregon USA, as well Nia teachers

in 46 countries across the globe, will be adding their drumming feet to this outcry for justice - and so can you!

Kathy Wolstenholme - founder of Nia Technique (Joy of Movement) in SA says:

www.niasouthafrica.co.za

"There is no doubt in my mind, that Nia has helped us all grow in strength.

More importantly, Nia has developed our inner power.

We sense in our bodies what is right and wrong, refuse to be 'uncomfortably numb' and by

understanding and feeling compassion for pain, we find the courage of our Voice.

I hope you will join this call to dance on Thursday 14th February, throughout SA,

as we honor the passion for justice, through our bodies!"

Dancing and free movement can be a very powerful way for women to feel into their hearts,

release their fears, sense their feminine essence and desires, be creative, celebrate & express themselves through the power of music.

"Speaking up" through the body and through our voices can initiate healing & help to move through the pain of abuse.

The One Billion & Rising initiative was inspired by a survey that estimated that 1 in 3 women will be beaten or raped in her lifetime.

With our world population standing at 7 billion, means that that 1 billion women and girls will be affected.

One Billion Rising is a promise that we will rise up with women and men worldwide to say,

'Enough! The violence ends now.'

This global action is truly escalating and gaining force,

and when we come together on February 14, 2013, it will be a truly global voice that will rise up.
