Tremendous Spirit is moving today!

Women and men rising and dancing in the streets.

You can see it on the Internet at onebillionrising.org.

What is it?

-A global strike
.

-An invitation to dance
A call to men and women to refuse to participate in the status quo until rape and rape culture ends
.

-An act of solidarity, demonstrating to women the commonality of their struggles and their power in numbers.


-A refusal to accept violence against women and girls as a given.


-A new time and a new way of being.

I like what Alice Waters has to say about what today is about.
