Expired Urgent Actions & Appeals
JASS Crossregional
Women’s political empowerment strategies have produced important policy and institutional changes around the world in the last two decades. These advances have at times been met with resistance as women’s rights gains and basic freedoms are threatened by well-financed backlash from powerful extremist actors across the globe. This backlash, sometimes violent, has shifted the terrain of women’s political organizing, making women’s activism more dangerous while also creating unexpected opportunities and fresh strategies from Mexico to Egypt and beyond.
On V-Day’s 15th Anniversary, 14 February 2013, 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.
