One Billion Rising: A Memory, a Monologue, a Rant, and a Prayer

One Billion Rising is the biggest mass action to end violence against women in human history. The campaign began in 2013 with the fierce struggle against sexual and physical violence – taking on the advocacy against rape, battery, incest, female genital mutilation and sex trafficking that V-Day campaigns over 18 years have been at the forefront of.

This year, One Billion Rising Revolution is giving sharper focus and visibility to the exploitation of women, and to harnessing even stronger global solidarity to demand an end to violence in all forms. Join Fletcher Global Women and the Institute for Human Security as we rise up for women!

On February 14th, students will perform “A Memory, A Monologue, A Rant and a Prayer; Writings to End Violence Against Women & Girls.” The play is an anthology, edited by Eve Ensler and Mollie Doyle, and features monologues from several authors and playwrights that explore violence on all levels. Monologues address a range of issues including border crossing, self-mutilation, women’s work, and abduction in Sudan. Tickets are $5 each and can be purchased at the door. All proceeds will support the Cambridge Women’s Center. Refreshments will be served following the performance!
