One Billion Rising

One Billion Rising

  • San Francisco City Hall Rotunda

Rise for Revolution

One Billion Rising is the biggest mass action to end violence against women in human history.  The campaign, launched on Valentine’s Day 2012, began as a call to action based on the staggering statistic that 1 in 3 women on the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime. With the world population at 7 billion, this adds up to more than ONE BILLION WOMEN AND GIRLS.  

On 14 February 2013, people across the world came together to express their outrage, strike, dance, and RISE in defiance of the injustices women suffer, demanding an end at last to violence against women.  

Last year, on 14 February 2014, One Billion Rising for Justice focused on the issue of justice for all survivors of gender violence, and highlighted the impunity that lives at the intersection of poverty, racism, war, the plunder of the environment, capitalism, imperialism, and patriarchy. Events took place in 200 countries, where women, men, and youth came together to Rise, Release, and Dance outside of court houses, police stations, government offices, school administration buildings, work places, sites of environmental injustice, military courts, embassies, places of worship, homes, or simply public gathering places where women deserve to feel safe but too often do not. The campaign was covered widely by media in all corners of world including The New York Times, The Guardian, NPR, and many more.

This year in 2015, we are rising for Revolution. We invite you to join us.

DISRUPT. Filipina Women: Proud. Loud. Leading Without A Doubt.

DISRUPT. Filipina Women: Proud. Loud. Leading Without a Doubt.

“DISRUPT. Filipina Women: Proud. Loud. Leading Without a Doubt” is a collective synthesis on the meaning of Filipina women’s leadership experiences as they navigated the corporate cultures in the global workplace.

The selected authors are recipients of FWN’s 100 Most Influential Filipina Women in the World Award™.

“This book project is a deep examination of how Filipina women in diaspora thrived in the challenges of living in the modern multicultural global economy,” explained Susie Quesada, president of FWN. “This is the definitive book that will change the public’s perceptions of Filipina women’s capacities to lead, FWN’s Pinay Power 2020 mission.”

“I congratulate the FWN editors Maria Africa Beebe and Maya Ong Escudero for their labor of love, guiding the authors’ writings, transforming the submissions into literary gems, and in the daunting task of pulling all the details of the publishing process. KUDOS for the elegant book cover design goes to multi-awarded Lucille Lozada Tenazas, Global FWN100 ‘13 and Henry Wolf Professor of Communication Design & Associate Dean of Art, Media and Technology at Parsons The New School for Design,” said FWN Founder & CEO Marily Mondejar.
