This campaign achieved its highest point in Bukavu, DRC, in Panzi (Mushununu) on the football field. More than 200 countries took interest in this “One Billion Rising” campaign. They abandoned their ordinary activities to speak up and say no to violent acts and rapes against the most precious resource, women.

Women and men of all nationalities rose against the violence committed against women and girls. They expressed this through dance and joyful cries.

Merci

Chère Sandra,

Je suis ravie que vous ayez partagé avec nous ce reportage plein d’espoir et de paix à propos du mouvement V-DAY en RDC. Il y a tant d’histoires tristes, et qui brisent le cœur, qui émergent chaque jour de la RDC ; ainsi c’est vraiment un peu d’air frais à lire ces belles histoires du succès de la campagne « One Billion Rising. » Ça me rend très, très fière d’être femme en compagnie de toutes les femmes comme vous sur notre planète. Il faut que vous sachiez que nous sommes avec vous. Nous vous écoutons.

Au nom du V-DAY,
LightMyWay
