A shocking statistic and an opportunity to something about it . . .
DID YOU KNOW?
ONE IN THREE WOMEN ON THE PLANET
WILL BE RAPED OR BEATEN IN HER LIFETIME.
I’m going to cut right to the chase. We must rise up to stop violence against girls and women. Now. It’s time for a revolution of love.
1 Billion Risingis a good start.There are lots of reasons I care about this issue. Some are personal. The fact is those 1/3 of women around the globe are my sisters and your sisters.We must rise up. It is unconscionable to do anything less. Here’s my way of rising up:
Poetry was a pathway to healing for me as I believe it can be for many women. Let’s co-create a world where it is no longer acceptable to sweep crimes against women under the rug. Or silence the victims. Or cloak them in shame.
Yeah, I know it’s Valentine’s Day. And I hope you soaking up the love and cherishing more of who you are. My wish is that women worldwide awaken to the awareness that they are already whole and that, together, we turn the tide against the atrocities that are unfolding in our world. To turn the other way is not an acceptable option.
Choose LOVE. And join me and the 1 Billion Rising by making our world a better place.
With Gratitude, Love and a wee bit of passion . . .
