ONE BILLION RISING is an international campaign, stemming from the realisation that one in three women on the planet will be beaten or raped during their lifetime. Over a world population of seven billion, this adds up to more than ONE BILLION WOMEN AND GIRLS. Every year on Valentine’s day people all over the world come together to express their outrage, strike, dance, and RISE demanding an end to violence against women.
Victim Support Malta has organised several One Billion Rising events in Malta, including the most recent, in February 2016. For more information please check out the 2016 One Billion Rising Malta Facebook page and the One Billion Rising official website.
