ONE IN THREE WOMEN ON THE PLANET WILL BE RAPED OR BEATEN IN HER LIFETIME

ONE BILLION WOMEN VIOLATED IS AN ATROCITY

ONE BILLION WOMEN DANCING IS A REVOLUTION

This week, join V-Day in demanding an end to violence against women everywhere. Write a blog post or poem, take a photo, or make a video--anything that you feel represents your voice--post it on She Writes, and then share a link to it here in the comments section by 9am PST/12pm EST this Thurs 2/14. We'll select three of our favorite contributions to feature in this Thursday's newsletter...and you'll be joining a revolution. We look forward to hearing (and seeing) what you have to say!

So happy you all are doing this! I wrote about it this week: http://www.shewrites.com/profiles/blogs/we-will-always-go-dancing

Awesome--thanks, Jessica!

Hi Jess! :)

What an eye-opening message from a little girl. Thanks for writing this.

This is a post I wrote in August of 2012. I think it's relevant to this project.

Definitely relevant, Calandra. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks, Krissa! I gave folks a heads up the other day on my daily photo blog:

Wonderful, Petrea, thanks. Be sure to let us know if you do end up going dancing!

Thanks, I mean to go--hope to get pictures!

This is a wonderful idea.  Thanks so much for doing it!  I'm enjoying reading the posts and seeing the content people are producing and my own contribution was cathartic (but hard - whew!) http://citymusecountrymuse2012.blogspot.com/

What a lovely piece you wrote, Juliet--I can understand why it was difficult to write. Thank you for sharing it!

Thank you for reading it, Krista.  This is such an important issue!  I am actually an advisor to our feminist group at Columbia College in Chicago, Il.  They are a fantastic group of young women and men who are in their fourth year of campus consciousness raising around these issues.
