The whole world united for one cause - fighting violence against women - will be written in golden letters in history. Februray 14 was the day when the One Billion Rising happened and all around the world women and men danced for women's rights. Names such as Anoushka Shankar and actor Thandie Newton joined the uprising and danced on the streets to show solidarity with hundreds of women who have faced abuse in one form or the other.
Polish women also did their bid and joined the uprising, dancing away in unity with the world for the issue. Joannna Piotrowska, an organizer of the dance for the women's liberty said, “This dance is taking place in 200 countries around the world on February 14 for Valentine’s Day and 30 cities in Poland are taking part in the unprecedented historical event.”
She also added, “Each year in Poland 700,000 and one million women suffer from physical and sexual violence. A 100 and 50 women each year are assassinated for family reasons. These are appalling figures.” One of the volunteers said that she has traveled from a far off place to be part of the revolution, as she believes that women are not only there to perform household chores.
The dance for solidarity took place in 109 countries and India saw its own revolutionary groups taking to the event with gusto. Eve Ensler, the founder of One Billion rising recently visited India with her message of equality and after the Delhi rape case, everyone has woken up to the issue in India.
