Violence against women hurts everyone, including men. We invite our brothers to take up this cause, and be free from the limiting strictures of our modern definition of masculinity! #MenRise
We are so moved to see all the men who have joined ONE BILLION RISING. So many of you, our brothers, fathers, grandfathers, sons, friends, husbands, and boyfriends have committed to RISE with us on 14 February.
This movement would not be possible without you. Violence against women and girls is a human issue that effects all of us, and it is only with you by our sides that our goals will be realized.
When Eve met His Holiness Gyalwang Karmapa at TED India, she was immediately inspired by his commitment to this movement to write a prayer – the Man Prayer. This piece, beautifully brought to life as a short film by Eve Ensler and filmmaker Tony Stroebel, is for all men and we hope all of you will watch it and share it with every man you know.
