2017 - RISE FOR WOMEN WORKERS
SOLIDARITY AGAINST THE EXPLOITATION OF WOMEN

2017 was beyond comparison in our 19 years of work. The assent of a known sexual predator to the US Presidency alongside the emergence of other anti-women, anti-people leaders and governments around the world not only crystallized everything our movement has been working towards since 1998, but also galvanized our activists in an unprecedented way as they took to the stage and the streets in the face of policies and actions that sought to strip their basic rights and call into question their experiences.

With sharper focus on the rising and resistance against the systems that cause other forms of violence - imperialism, neo-facism, racism, capitalism and neo-liberalism – activists in our College and Community campaigns and One Billion Rising's Solidarity Against the Exploitation of Women campaign took up their struggle against sexual and physical violence, expanding their frame to focus on interconnected issues facing the most vulnerable: workers rights, immigration, poverty, racial violence, corruption, environmental plunder, state sponsored wars, militarization, displacement, and violence created by greed and lack of access to healthcare and education. At the City of Joy and in places like Afghanistan, women sowed seeds of inner and societal revolution.

You will see in the following pages expanded coverage of the work taking place through the V-Day and One Billion Rising movements, and on the ground in the Democratic Republic of Congo, at the City of Joy.

2014: ONE BILLION RISING FOR JUSTICE

It is always our pleasure to share the powerful work of bold and outrageous activists across the world who are fighting to end violence against women and girls. 2014 was no different, it was a transformative year for V-Day and One Billion Rising, where every rising was part of a collective energetic decision to end violence and racial, environmental, economic and gender injustice. We stand in awe of what we were able to accomplish as a movement, and we can only do what we do with your help! We hope you enjoy this snapshot of another phenomenal year.

2013: ONE BILLION RISING

V-Day's 15th anniversary year was unprecedented in every respect. One Billion women, men, and youth in 207 countries were inspired to STRIKE, RISE, and DANCE to end violence against women and girls. Record numbers of V-Day events were produced. The fourth class of women graduated from the City of Joy and returned to their communities with confidence, skills and knowledge to lead. Safe houses, rape crises centers and sexual assault campus programs kept their doors open despite government shut downs and long odds, laws in many countries were changed, and the Violence Against Women Act was reauthorized in the US.

2012: The Path To One Billion!

In 2011-2012, we began a journey to mount V-Day’s largest and most ambitious campaign to date - ONE BILION RISING. In doing so, our dedicated V-team of staff, consultants, volunteers, friends and activists dreamed, envisioned, and created a strategy to reach our ambitious goal of ONE BILLION people. The ensuing work has made for one of the most challenging and exciting years we have had in the V-Day movement to end violence against women and girls.

The 2010-2011 year was a time of great transformation for our team at V-Day, and our activists and supporters globally. Overall when we look back at this year, we see a deepening of our collective commitment to ending violence against women and girls, and a renewed clarity about our work and the path ahead.

2010: BUILDING THE MOVEMENT, BUILDING THE CITY OF JOY

In 2010, V-Day once again mobilized thousands of activists, stakeholders, politicians and supporters around the world to keep a sharp and steady focus on the epidemic of sexual violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo. In February 2011, we opened the City of Joy, a revolutionary center for survivors of sexual violence in Bukavu. We are beyond thrilled to finally be at this important juncture in V-Day's work, as we know that the City of Joy will serve as a model for groundbreaking and transformative work in other parts of the world where women and girls are being violated.

2009: TURNING PAIN TO POWER

In 2009, alongside our worldwide activists, V-Day was horrified by the brutal and rampant violence that makes the Congo the most dangerous place to be a woman or girl, but inspired daily by the spirit of the women and girls of the Congo. Impassioned by this spirit, we were determined to bring the story of the Congo to the world. In telling the story, we made new friends and associations, expanded our networks and felt truly reinvigorated as we entered our 11th year! Thanks to you we are able to continue this important work and TURN PAIN TO POWER.
