One Billion Rising is:

A global strike
An invitation to dance
A call to men and women to refuse to participate in the status quo
until rape and rape culture end
An act of solidarity, demonstrating to women the commonality of our
struggles and our power in numbers
A refusal to accept violence against women and girls as a given
A new time and a new way of being
