West Hollywood Rising for Justice

OneBillionRising-WestHollywood-Feb14-2014-Panoramic

Yesterday I participated in the One Billion Rising for Justice movement. Did any of you partake in this? I have to tell you that it felt soooooooooo good to dance with my sisters and brothers (yes there were men there too) in the name of ending violence against women and girls and celebrating the beauty and wisdom of our bodies!  

 

As we danced together, we took a stand for healing the rift between women and men when it comes to honoring, respecting and valuing the feminine body, the feminine heart and the feminine soul.

Here I am with Bodhi, Lindsey Horvath (global coordinator for One Billion Rising), and my dear friend Reena Desai. Through our signs, Reena and I are sharing our thoughts about what justice looks like to us.

We joined with women, men and youth in more than 207 countries around the world to say: NO MORE.

Jane Fonda at One Billion Rising for Justice
At our West Hollywood RISING, Jane Fonda spoke out about her experience of sexual violence, including incest in her personal life as well as in the lives of all of her closest friends.

I believe the day will come when this violence against women and girls will seem absurd, and our mindset will be how could anyone desecrate or denounce the female body, the home of the feminine soul? 

  

 What do you think about this?
