ONE BILLION RISING FOR JUSTICE IS ABOUT ENVISIONING JUSTICE FOR ALL SURVIVORS OF GENDER VIOLENCE. JUSTICE CAN TAKE MANY FORMS.

It can be an apology or reparations.  Taking legal action.  It can be about making the truth visible. It can be prosecuting, or pushing to create change, or implementing policies and laws that ensure the protection of women’s rights. It can be calling for an end to all forms of inequality, discrimination, misogyny and patriarchy. It can be naming or shaming perpetrators – whether they be individuals, groups, corporations or the state. Demanding accountability.  It can be rising for justice be it personal, social, economic, cultural, environmental or political.  It can be a revolutionary call to restore dignity and respect for all women.

It can be about transformation.

As we bring this global discussion to the forefront, we want to hear from you what justice looks like. Join thousands of activists from around the world, share your vision of justice.

There will be live music, dancing and celebrating.

Join us on Friday 14 Feb!

See you there.
