14th February 2014 is V-Day – a global day of action to demand an end to violence against women. A billion women, and those who love them, will strike and rise for justice. Why?
ONE IN THREE WOMEN ON THE PLANET WILL BE RAPED OR BEATEN IN HER LIFETIME
THAT IS ONE BILLION WOMEN
Here in Norwich, our plan is simple. We want as many people as possible to meet outside the Forum between 1pm and 2pm and join us for an hour of drumming and dance. We’ve got a specially created rhythm for you to learn and invite you to bring pots and pans to drum with. This is to reflect that so much violence against women is in a domestic setting. We’ll also be dancing and drumming to “Break the Chain”. We’ll have practices every Sunday morning from 12th January.
Here’s our beautiful poster designed by international artist Eloise O’Hare
