A Tribute to Womanhood

Welcome to "I Am Woman"...a tribute to all those women who had the courage and perseverance to stand up and fight for their rights. Thanks to those who came before us we enjoy a freedom unknown to women not too long ago. But, sadly, in many parts of the world, women continue to be repressed. In fact, even in this country there are women living today under the threat of violence...completely controlled by a violent spouse. Some may make it; others won't. Hopefully, one day ALL women will be free. May that day come soon.


One Billion Rising, February 14, 2013

 Please spread far and wide.

One in every three women on the planet will be raped or beaten during her lifetime.  It's time to end this violence.  That is why Eve Ensler wants you to join her campaign.  Events  are planned all across the globe. Find a Rising Near You to find the event nearest you, and GO HERE to learn the flash mob dance "Break The Chain" at home 

"Dance is dangerous, joyous, sexual, holy, disruptive, contagious, it breaks the rules. 
It can happen anywhere, anytime, with anyone and everyone, and it's free.
Dancing insists we take up space, we go there together in community.
Dance joins us and pushes us to go further and that is why it's at the center of ONE BILLION RISING.
With infectious music and lyrics from Tena Clark, amazing vocals by a talented group of V-Girls,
and Debbie Allen’s bold choreography, Break The Chain is the anthem that will call up one billion to rise.”

- Eve Ensler
