One Billion Rising

One Billion Rising

Join V-Day and One Billion Rising today and SAY NO to violence against women and girls.
One in three woman on the planet will be raped or beaten in her lifetime.
One billion women violated is an atrocity.

ONE BILLION RISING will move the earth, activating women and men across every country.
V-Day wants the worlds to see our collective strengths, our numbers, our solidarity across borders.

Mayors throughout NZ take the White Ribbon Pledge

Mayors throughout New Zealand have helped launch the White Ribbon Campaign by signing The Pledge to never commit, condone or remain silent about violence towards women.

The White Ribbon Pledge is one of a number of initiatives organised by the Families Commission-led White Ribbon Campaign. The pledge brings together New Zealanders throughout the country in a united show of support to end violence against women. As this support grows for a violence-free future, the White Ribbon Campaign hopes to encourage men to take a stand and show they’re man enough to end violence. To sign the pledge simply click here
