Eve Ensler and Kimberle Crenshaw on the Global Movement to End Violence Against Women

A movement is growing worldwide to stop violence against women and girls. One Billion Rising for Justice will take place on February 14, Valentine's Day, in more than 200 countries worldwide, focusing on the issue of justice for all survivors of gender violence and the impunity that protects perpetrators all over the world. The One Billion Rising and V-Day campaigns were launched by playwright Eve Ensler, creator of "The Vagina Monologues," and highlights the startling statistic that one in every three women on the planet will be raped or beaten in her lifetime.
