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!

As part of One Billion Rising, here's a post where you can contact House Representatives to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act:

Thanks for this, Kayann--a galvanizing post, and the bill is one I'm sure many She Writers will be interested to learn about if they don't know about it already.

Thank you for posting this and reminding us of speaking up and making our voices heard to our Representatives.

I just posted V-day-One Billion Rising to tell women about the event.  I've chosen two videos to dance to as well.  Happy V-Day everyone! http://www.lisathomsonlive.com/v-day-one-billion-rising/

Thanks so much, Lisa!

What a great effort.

I blog about domestic violence regularly. Here's a recent contribution. Thanks for the opportunity.http://www.lameredith.com/2013/01/honoring-young-female-victims-of....

Thanks, Lizbeth. And I love the call to action at the end of your post!

Thank you again for providing the venue. 

OK, so here's my post on this. It was easy to write, but hard to share. I had to hit publish before I lost my nerve. Now I've got that sick feeling inside, like what did I just do? http://bit.ly/XC4xb8

I'm with Melanie Coffee--my One Billion Rising blog post was hard to share.  Still, it felt good to contribute.  The link is:  http://www.shewrites.com/profiles/blogs/one-billion-rising-one-woma...   Thanks!

Thank you for sharing, Janine. It takes a lot of courage to tell that story.

Thank you for this, Melanie. I can understand why it was so difficult to share--but I think that makes it all the more important. The fewer women who stay silent, the faster change can happen!
