One Billion Rising (OBR) campaign is a global call to action to stop violence against women and girls, it is about connecting all our efforts across borders and boundaries to create a safer world for women and girls and to reach out to men and boys to examine their power and privileges and stand up and speak up for equality. OBR has been using artistic expressions recognising that patriarchy and oppression often imprison our bodies and stifle our voices and curtail our cultural expressions. It is then through partnering with performers and artists that we rise as a collective against oppression.

We are rising again with the only agenda of reaching out to every last individual for the sake of a gender just society. In order to have a larger social media resonance with the vision of every social media platform having just one headline and discussion that is “TO HAVE A GENDER JUST SOCIETY” on the behalf of OBR we are calling all the youth focused organisations and forums to come together and create a larger advocacy module for the coming months.
