On February 14th – that’s a week from today – One Billion Rising will protest against and stand up for an end to violence against women. This is a global effort, coordinated by “The Vagina Monologues” playwright Eve Ensler, who I had the honor of communicating with during last year’s “Vaginagate” scandal in Michigan.
After publicly performing blog entries about vaginas in Union Square, last year (here are some photos by @gavechase – bit.ly/11LVtiI), this year I’ll participate in Eve Ensler’s effort to end violence against women by going to the Washington Square Park demonstration here in New York City. Their page contains links to rehearsals and more information.
If you can’t get to a protest (there’s a fantastic database of events on the organization’s website), then try to take a moment of your day – whether it’s to tweet, to post a Facebook status update, or even just have a thought – for the cause.
And maybe spend some time reading about Ensler’s organization and their goals. 😉
Gettin’ ready to rise…
