FWN Women Take Action on International Women's Day in Manila

2016 Theme: Pledge for Parity
FWN Women Take Action on International Women's Day


with Marily Mondejar, FWN Founder & CEO
in Manila to kick-off the 13th Filipina Leadership Summit in the Philippines

Worldwide, women continue to contribute to social, economic, cultural and political achievement. But progress towards gender parity has slowed in many places. The World Economic Forum predicted in 2014 that it would take until 2095 to achieve global gender parity. Then one year later in 2015, they estimated that a slowdown in the already glacial pace of progress meant the gender gap wouldn't close entirely until 2133.

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.

“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.
