V-Day a Global Movement

Dancing one billion rising 500w

Instead of celebrating Valentine's Day with hearts and roses the global, grassroots movement V-Day inspires women (and hopefully some men) to rise up on February 14th, 2013.

The special way of portest is to DANCE and raise awareness about the wide spread forms of violence, which 1 in 3 women endures on a daily basis.

DLDwomen speaker Pat Mitchell is on the board of V-Day, among other power women who support the vision that "women should spend their lives creating and thriving rather than surviving or recovering from terrible atrocities."
