RISE 2019: From a Campaign to a Way of Life

Thousands of Risings calling for an end to violence against all women and girls, led by grassroots activists in every country, took place around the globe.

Rising in the streets putting their bodies and lives on the line. RISING to end sexual violence in all its forms - rape, battery, incest, sexual harassment, female genital mutilation, sexual slavery and trafficking, child marriage, femicide, sexual-gender and reproductive oppression and violence towards LGBTQIA+ communities - and RISING to end the systemic violence, oppression and exploitation of all women and girls (cisgender, transgender, and those who hold fluid identities that are subject to gender based violence) in the context of capitalism, colonization, racism, imperialism, environmental plunder and war.

This year activists were braver, went deeper, studied, listened, asked difficult questions, engaged, took action & pushed themselves out of their comfort zones physically and intellectually. Because Rising is no longer a campaign it is a way of life.

21 years since Eve Ensler's play The Vagina Monologues shattered taboos, the stakes could not be higher. V-Day is a movement that grew out of the untold stories of women.

The Vagina Monologues gave birth to V-Day, a global activist movement to end violence against all women and girls (cisgender, transgender, and those who hold fluid identities that are subject to gender based violence). With creativity and determination, V-activists around the world tirelessly work to end harassment, rape, battery, incest, female genital mutilation and sex slavery.
