Norwich Rising, 1 Billion Rising 14th February 2013

Norwich Rising campaigners have made a movie trailer for their 1 Billion Rising event.

Have you heard about One Billion Rising? It's a global day of action on 14th February 2013 to inspire 1 billion women and girls, and the people who love them, to dance to demand an end to violence against all women and girls. Why 1 billion? Because the UN estimates that one in three women on earth (1 billion women) will be raped or sexually assaulted in her lifetime.

Here in Norwich, we're aiming to inspire 20,000 women and girls (approximately one in three women who live in the city) and men and boys to dance on 14th February. We're going to have a mass dance outside the Forum in Norwich at 1pm and we are encouraging people to dance with us there, or wherever they are, and in whatever way they can. Future Radio 107.8fm will be playing the Campaign song so people can dance in their homes, schools & workplaces at the same time as people are dancing outside the Forum.
