One Billion Rising

One Billion Rising is an event calling attention to violence against women and demanding an end.

Different statistics say that 1 in three or 1 in four women in the world will be assaulted in her lifetime. That's 1 billion people, and it's not ok. As Esther grows up, she is one of those three or four, so it is important to me to do what I can to put an end to it now. I plan on participating at the event in Philadelphia, and I urge everyone to find an event near them and participate.

I'll post more about this as the day comes.
