RISE on International Women’s Day; Join V in NYC at the Abortion On Demand & Without Apology Protest

RISE for the Bodies of All Women, Girls & the Earth International Women’s Day Through Earth Day

One Billion Rising events are taking place and will continue through 22 April, Earth Day with the 2022 theme: RISE for the Bodies of All Women, Girls & the Earth. Creative resistance events take various forms from flash mobs to documentary films, candlelight vigils to trainings with men, night walks to pride marches and more.

We call on the world to hold Artistic Risings for the bodies of all women and for the ‘ultimate body’ – our earth. Using the body as your call. Using the body as your resistance. We call on the world to use Art. Dance. Theater. Film. Visual Art. Photography. Sculpture. Painting. Sports. Performance. And more.

To reclaim
To express
To defy
To disrupt
To unite
To radicalize
To awaken
To revolutionize

And to create JOY, HOPE and TRANSFORMATION
