One Billion Rising!

     On February 14, 2013 men and women from all walks of life from different countries shall take to the streets and dance in solidarity  to call an end to violence against women in One Billion Rising!  GABRIELA, a Filipino mass organization which has been in the forefront of the campaign to end gender violence , spearheads  this activity in the Philippines. 

    I just saw this  powerful video, produced by DM9 Jayme Syfu for GABRIELA. I am humbled. There is  so much more that needs to be done to end the culture of violence against women, children and other marginalized groups.
