V-Day's one billion rising

Today, Valentine's Day, marks the 15th anniversary of
'One Billion Rising', the global campaign inviting one
billion women and those who really love them to stop
what they normally do, walk out, strike, and dance
with the outrageous idea that all together we can
bring violence against women to an end. 
One in three women on the planet will be raped or beaten
in her lifetime *. Ending rape culture is as important as
ending poverty, Aids or global warming, that's why OBR
will shake the world activiting women and men with
dancing flash mobs in 190 countries including my
hometown where this evening I will join the rising.
Happy Valentine's Day, anyway!

  1. Dearest Elisabetta,
    Hat's off to you for bringing this very worthwhile cause up on Valentine's Day. But let's hope that more people will start fighting for women's respect!!!
    Hugs to you and Happy Valentine's Day
