Zimbabwe Is Rising
“One Billion Rising” was a global movement involving groups of people all around the world on Valentine’s Day, who danced together in protest against violence against women and girls. Young people from Zvandiri joined together with other dancers the National Gallery in Harare, to make sure that Zimbabwe was also part of this global effort. Both men and women turned up to participate on the dance floor and what fun we had! Our theme was “Zimbabwe is rising to bring an end to violence against women and take women’s safety to the center of the agenda”.
Yesterday was about leaving your everyday life of both physical and emotional abuse knowing you can strike, dance and rise.
We joined the international community-many countries were rising with us and it was an exhilarating experience. If you want to learn the official One Billion Rising dance please go to http://onebillionrising.org/blog/we-have-an-anthem…
