In this episode, we‘re taking you back to earlier in the year - February in fact - when we visited the regions where we held the annual One Billion Rising event on Wednesday February 14th.
ONE BILLION RISING began as a call to action based on the staggering statistic that 1 in 3 women on the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime. With the world population at 7 billion, this adds up to more than ONE BILLION WOMEN AND GIRLS. And since 2013, one of those places where we come together for One Billion Rising is in Second Life.
On February 14, 2018, women and men in Second Life joined people across the world to Rise as a show of unity, individual strength, and the need for change. The event featured a four-region stage where 200 people could dance together, surrounded by an area of art installations and informational exhibits.
