A massive well done to everyone who rose with us in Wales today for One Billion Rising. We had such a magnificent crowd with us – we danced, we laughed, we captured the public’s attention. We made our point too, that we are rising because 1 in 3 women will be raped or beaten in her lifetime and that equates to one billion women on the planet. And that’s not just an anomaly, that’s an epidemic excused by apologists the world over.
My personal hope for today is that we have inspired at least one person to join us in the fight against inequality and violence against women. That at least one person will become a friend, a part of our network here in Cardiff. I know that there are plenty of us out there – I’ve seen you dance. Now I want to hear your voice.
