THE VICTIMS OF RAPE HAVE MANY FACES.

Recent studies show that rape is still all
too prevalent. Somewhere in America, a woman is raped every 2 minutes. By the
age of 18, 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be victimized.

Same Chic Different Day is rising, releasing and dancing today on behalf of One Billion Rising. We’re rising ALL DAY LONG to celebrate the indomitable spirit of rape and sexual assault survivors everywhere and to focus global attention on the widespread impunity that still exists. Join us.

Strike. Dance. Rise.

― Martin Luther King Jr.

Mark your calendars and join One Billion Rising on February 14, 2013 as we rise to protest violence against women around the world. Local efforts are underway and more details will follow; in the meantime, learn more about why I’m rising HERE.

Who’s standing with me?
