one billion rise up against violence against women

Representatives of the Canadian National Council of Jewish Women participated in the Calgary celebration of One Billion Rising – a worldwide day of action to increase awareness of violence against women. 
 
The event is organized by the Canadian Federation of University Women and was inspired by the huge demonstrations in India by men and women who will no longer be silent about the harassment, violence and outright assault suffered by women around the world as they attempt to get to work, shop for their families and otherwise just go about their daily business.
