People around the world are rising up and taking to the streets to dance on this Valentine’s Day. Their actions are part of a global movement to end rape and sexual violence called "One Billion Rising," launched by playwright Eve Ensler, creator of "The Vagina Monologues." Actions have already been held in Afghanistan, Indonesia, Nepal, India, Taiwan, Australia, New Zealand, Sudan and more. Here are the voices of some of those who danced in the Philippines. "Dance is really an action that can free women, that can also collectively bring us together; and because when you think of women being raped or beaten, their bodies are becoming their prison. So the form of dance is a form of breaking free from that oppression." "More than one billion women are experiencing abuse, and we women cannot just let it pass. That is why we want this day to mark an end to violence against women." Among those to voice solidarity with "One Billion Rising" is Anoushka Shankar, daughter of the legendary sitar player Ravi Shankar, a musician herself, and half-sister of singer Norah Jones. She told her story. "As a child, I suffered sexual and emotional abuse for several years at the hands of a man my parents trusted implicitly. Growing up, like most women I know, I suffered various forms of groping, touching, verbal abuse and other things I didn’t know how to deal with, I didn’t know I could change. And as a woman, I find I’m frequently living in fear — afraid to walk alone at night, afraid to answer a man who asks for the time, afraid I’m going to be judged or treated in ways based on the way I might choose to dress or the makeup I might choose to wear. And, you know, enough is enough. I’m rising." Muchas gracias por ver este reporte de Democracy Now! su informativo independiente diario.
