On Valentine's Day, Thursday, February 14th at 11:30am, All Saints Church will host Pasadena's participation in One Billion Rising. The movement's aim is to bring awareness to the problem, worldwide epidemic, and god damned (and I do mean god damned) tradition of violence against women. 1 of every 3 women has been a victim of such violence. This movement is necessary, and I want it to be powerful.
I was shocked and moved by this 3 minute film. It came in last week's Wired Women newsletter from Monica Hubbard. Monica compiles the week's local information to help women empower themselves politically, artistically, economically, etc. To sign up for Wired Women, click www.mjhubbard.com/wiredwomen. It's free, but you are welcome to make a donation if you like.
The One Billion Rising video fired me up. All Saints Church made a video, too, and it will delight you. I think it might be fun to go dance with these people.
