There are thousands (maybe tens of thousands) of websites, blogs, awareness campaigns, etc. where EVE from around the corner and around the world are talking to each other in ways and numbers that were unimaginable even a decade ago. Here are just a few examples of this power and potential:
** EVE in hundreds of countries around the world can “RISE” together on the same day in a coordinated demand/celebration for justice for EVE - www.onebillionrising.org/
** Hundreds of thousands of EVE from all corners of the planet can inspire and support each other in seeking the true, peaceful center of their being - www.awakeningwomen.com/
** EVE of all ages and all situations can share their need for feminism and the changes it will bring to our societies - www.agirlsguidetotakingovertheworld.co.uk, and
** EVE and men can come together to celebrate and learn from the amazing EVE who have made a difference in the world already - www.facebook.com/WomenWhoChangeTheWorld
Whether it’s a face-to-face with EVE you know personally or a digital “conversation” with half the planet, keep speaking the truth and imaging a world of peace, justice, and pleasure – it ALL makes a huge difference!!

February 14th is traditionally celebrated as Valentine’s Day and focuses on love, romance, and relationships. But since Valentine’s Day 1998 there has been another focus that takes place on that date – V-Day.
V-Day is a day of action and awareness for the 1 BILLION RISING FOR JUSTICE campaign created by Eve Ensler, author of “The Vagina Monologues” to create awareness and activism to end violence against women and girls worldwide. The website http://www.onebillionrising.org/ says:
ONE IN THREE WOMEN ON THE PLANET WILL BE RAPED OR BEATEN IN HER LIFETIME.
THAT IS ONE BILLION WOMEN.
IN 2013, ONE BILLION WOMEN AND MEN SHOOK THE EARTH THROUGH DANCE TO END VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN AND GIRLS.
THIS YEAR, ON 14 FEBRUARY 2014 WE ARE CALLING ON WOMEN AND MEN EVERYWHERE TO HARNESS THEIR POWER AND IMAGINATION TO RISE FOR JUSTICE.
IMAGINE, ONE BILLION WOMEN RELEASING THEIR STORIES, DANCING AND SPEAKING OUT AT THE PLACES WHERE THEY NEED JUSTICE, WHERE THEY NEED AN END TO VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN AND GIRLS.
RISE. RELEASE. DANCE!
Visit the website, Like the Facebook page, Find a Rising near you, and/or sing and dance in your own living room on V-Day to show your support for this marvelous campaign to end violence against women in our lifetime.
