In honor of the rising number of women effected by domestic violence, One Billion Rising, an organization dedicated to not only bringing awareness to the violence against women, but ending it, hopes to reclaim Valentine’s Day.
The organization received it’s name from the staggering statistic that one in three women will be raped or beaten in their lifetime, that’s one billion women.
Men and women nationwide are encouraged to demonstrate and speak out against domestic violence.
