It is true, I should be editing the German One Billion Rising music video I filmed with Sookee… and not be blogging.
But since I will finish that video tonight (!!!) and it will probably get published on Friday (fingers crossed), I thought I’d quickly beforehand share the 7 videos I shot together with Karin Heisecke (V-Day Deutschland) of feminists in Berlin for the “I Am Rising…?” campaign of One Billion Rising, which in turn is a global event organized by Eve Ensler’s V-Day to take a stand against violence on women and girls.
I’m very excited to be involved in such an important cause – but because I’m a big fan of author, filmmaker and activist Eve Ensler, I’m especially honored to be part of this project.
From the One Billion Rising site (http://www.onebillionrising.org):
1 in 3 women on the planet is raped or beaten in her lifetime. That is
ONE BILLION women. On 14 February 2013 V-Day is inviting ONE BILLION
women and those who love them to WALK OUT, DANCE, RISE UP, and DEMAND an
end to this violence. ONE BILLION RISING will move the earth,
activating women and men across every country. We want the world to see
our collective strength, our numbers and our solidarity across borders.
Tell the world why you’re rising on February 14th, 2013 at
onebillionrising.org. What does ONE BILLION look like? On 14 February,
it will look like a REVOLUTION.
