The United Nations estimate that one in three women will be raped or beaten in her lifetime. That’s one billion women. On Thursday 14th February 2019 there will be a flashmob-style dance at 1pm at the Forum to demand an end to violence against women. This is the 7th Norwich Rising, part of the global One Billion Rising campaign. Dancers will be dancing to the “Break the Chain” dance, choreographed by Debbie Allen from Fame.
As well as dancing Break the Chain, we will also have a variety of dancers, speakers and performers.
