One Billion Rising is a global campaign by women, for women.[1][2][3] The movement calls for an end to violence, and for justice and gender equality.

On February 14, 2013, a one-day event will be held, a call for one billion women around the world to walk away from their homes, businesses, and jobs, and join together to dance in a show of collective strength.[4] The event will be held on the 15th anniversary of the V-Day movement.[5] The word "billion" refers to the one billion women who are survivors of abuse.[6]

On September 20, 2012, people from 160 countries had signed up to take part in the campaign.[7] On February 14, 2013, the rally was held in more than 190 countries.[8]

The campaign was initiated by playwright and activist Eve Ensler (known for her play The Vagina Monologues), and her organization V-Day.[9] The campaign was in part inspired by the Todd Akin 'legitimate rape' and pregnancy comment controversy. Ensler, shocked at Akin's statement, wrote an open letter in response.[10]

Around 5,000 organizations have joined the campaign, which has also been aided or endorsed by religious ministers, movement builders, actors Rosario Dawson, Robert Redford,[11][12] and Stella Creasy, British Labour Co-operative politician.[13]
