One Billion Rising

Posted By on Tue, Feb 12, 2013 at 1:35 PM


Ever seen a flash mob in person? Want to show support for the movement to end violence against women? Here’s your chance to experience both at once. On Valentine’s Day (that’s this Thursday, Feb. 14) hundreds of women will take part in a flash mob song and dance to “Break the Chains,” in English and Spanish, at 5pm in Santa Rosa’s Courthouse Square. Men will stand by in a semi-circle and sing in support.

The mob is a part of One Billion Rising, an international movement to end all violence. It was spurred by Vagina Monologues author Eve Ensler and will include over 200 countries. “More than one out of every three women on this planet will experience violence during her lifetime,” says Ensler in a press release. “Dance joins us and pushes us to go further, and that is why it's at the center of One Billion Rising."
