One Billion Rising

The One Billion Rising campaign aims to work towards ending violence against women. A signature of its international campaign is action through dance.

Yesterday in Hyde Park, around two hundred women gathered to demand an end to all forms of violence against women, including domestic violence, workplace exploitation and human trafficking. The event culminated in a mass performance of the One Billion Rising dance.

The action was organised by Asian Women At Work and Immigrant Women Speak Out.
