Chuck Wendig linked to this thing on Twitter. It's called One Billion Rising. From the website:
Today, on the planet, a billion women – one of every three women on the planet – will be raped or beaten in her lifetime. That’s ONE BILLION mothers, daughters, sisters, partners, and friends violated. V-Day REFUSES to stand by as more than a billion women experience violence.
On February 14th, 2013, V-Day's 15th Anniversary, we are inviting one billion women and those who love them to walk out, DANCE, RISE UP, AND DEMAND an end to this violence. One Billion Rising is a promise that we will rise up with women and men worldwide to say, "Enough! The violence ends now."They have an interactive map that shows events that have been started in the world. I was so super stoked when I saw the US map.
|Look at all that pink!!!!|
And then I saw this:
|Oh, Arkansas. You make me so sad.|
**UPDATED** Hooray, Arkansas! Way to go, guys! I feel less sad!
