Hi boys and girls. Just a little rundown of statistics, if you don’t mind. One in three women living in this planet will get raped or beaten in her lifetime. The reasons are limitless – religion, dowry-related issues, or just plain discrimination. In other words, no matter how silly violence against women seems, at least one woman you know experiences it.
Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day, and many of us would probably be celebrating the day of love. While it is still the 13th, we at Chicmunks are sharing our love for freedom, equality, and justice with sheer woman power.
We are inviting everyone to celebrate with One Billion Rising. One billion women will be dancing around the world to end the impunity against gender. Yes, boys and girls. February 14, 2013 is a day of revolution.
Go to http://www.onebillionrising.org/pages/about-one-billion-rising and sign up. Dance for change, along with the most beautiful people.
Oh, before we forget, take the time to learn the dance!
