One Billion Rising

One billion women and men are expected to strike, dance and rise against violence against women on 14 February 2013. This event, called ‘One billion rising’, has been initiated by V-Day, a global activist movement to end violence against women and girls, and aims at gathering as many people as possible to challenge and shatter the global acceptance of violence against women.


The Mediterranean Institute of Gender Studies, among others, is going to be part of this global call for action, and will organise an event in Nicosia on 14 February 2013 at the Mall of Cyprus in partnership with the European Parliament Office in Cyprus, Creativity Dance Studio and Mix FM Radio 102.3.
