Boston GLOW is incredibly proud to be a sponsor of the VDAY movement, through our exclusive Boston performances of the Vagina Monologues and this year, additionally our sponsorship of One Billion Rising.
For those of you who don't know, VDAY is a global movement and series of consciousness-raising events to end violence against girls and women through public performances, education, networking, and much more. The Vagina Monologues is the most recognized but just one of the campaign's many cornerstones.
Think about it: every 2 minutes someone is the victim of sexual or physical violence. The Vagina Monologues strives to break the silence this through stories, performance, and entertainment. The movement doesn't stop there.
ONE IN THREE WOMEN ON THE PLANET WILL BE RAPED OR BEATEN IN HER LIFETIME.
ONE BILLION WOMEN VIOLATED IS AN ATROCITY.
ONE BILLION WOMEN DANCING IS A REVOLUTION
On V-Day’s 15th Anniversary, 2.14.13, 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.
What does ONE BILLION look like? On February 14th, 2013, it will look like a REVOLUTION. Boston GLOW encourages you to rise up and dance with us.
