Statistics show that 1 in 3 women across the planet will be victims of some form of sexual abuse or exploitation during their lifetime. That’s ONE BILLION WOMEN AND GIRLS. Every February, we rise – in hundreds of countries across the world – to show our local communities and the world what one billion looks like and shine a light on the justice that survivors often face. How will you rise?
