One Billion Rising began as a call to action based on the staggering statistic that 1 in 3 women on the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime. With the world population at 7 billion, this adds up to more than ONE BILLION WOMEN AND GIRLS.
On February 14th, 2013, V-Day’s 15th anniversary, United Reformed Church, Oxford Road, Gomersal (BD19 4JS) will join activists, writers, thinkers, celebrities and women and men across the world as we express their outrage, demand change, strike, dance, and RISE in defiance of the injustices women suffer, demanding an end at last to violence against women.
Space to Rise
The Church Hall at the United Reformed Church will be open from 8.30am to 6pm. There will be a space to dance, a space to craft, a space to talk and a space to pray, a space to write letters to those in power or to ourselves.
If you only have five minutes, come and take your stand, make your mark on our craft wall… if you have longer… be welcome…. and use this space as you need.
