Dancing to end violence against women
WOMEN, men, boys and girls are all invited to join in Lismore's contribution to the global movement to end violence against women and girls, called One Billion Rising, on V-Day, Thursday February 14.
One in three women on the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime. With the world population at seven billion, this adds up to more than one billion women and girls.
"One billion women violated is an atrocity. One billion women dancing is a revolution," say US V-Day organisers.
The day of action has inspired groups in every country on Earth to demand change by getting together in public spaces and dancing.
Others - survivors of rape or violence, artists, writers - will gather in places such as Jacqueline King's glass studio at Dalwood, to share a cuppa and share experiences; contact email@example.com
The Lismore and District Women's Health Centre, in partnership with Lismore City Council, is organising a dance event, Lismore Rising, on Thursday, February 14 from 4.30-6pm next to the Transit Centre at the corner of Molesworth and Magellan Streets, Lismore. Should be fun!
