OBR 2016 Performed by the Elysium Cabaret
"Break the Chain" aims to raise awareness around the world about V-Day's fastest escalating global campaign to date, ONE BILLION RISING. The ONE BILLION RISING campaign 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. On 14 February 2016, V-Day's 18th anniversary, activists, writers, thinkers, celebrities and women and men across the world will come together to express their outrage in defiance of the injustices women suffer, demanding an end at last to violence against women.
