1 Billion Rising: Dance against violence

Today is a worldwide action day to draw attention to the problem of violence against women.
All around the globe, events are being held where you can dance to show your support - they are called "risings". It's no coincidence that it's being held on Valentine's Day; the organisation behind it is called V-Day, and aims to raise awareness of violence against women. Twitter hashtags are #Vday and #1billionrising
