The „One Billion Rising“ campaign is a global independent movement that aims to clearly raise voice against the violence against women and girls all over the world, because: one in three women in the world is raped or beaten in her lifetime, which makes the figure of one billion women who suffer violence. It's frightening. Violence is a broad social problem that is often silent. Violence against women takes place in various spheres of life and includes a variety of violations of social, civil, political, economic and cultural rights of women.

The aim of the campaign is that the whole world, Montenegro included, see our common strength and solidarity that knows no geographical boundaries. So, come, dance, stand up and demand an end to violence against women!
