One Billion Rising In Second Life – Come Join Us!

One of the things that makes me proud to be in Second Life is the way that the virtual world can help promote real world causes and events. It often gives people a chance to participate and be heard in a way that they couldn’t in real life.  One issue that’s gained a lot of press recently, and rightly so, is violence towards women.

It’s a horrifying fact that one in three women and girls on the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime. That adds up to a staggering one billion women.

On Valentine’s Day, Second Life celebrates  women by joining together for One Billion Rising SL. This is a virtual extension of the global event where activists, writers, thinkers, celebrities, and people around the world will walk, dance, and rise as a show of unity, individual strength, and the need for change.

In-world men and women of Second Life are invited to support the cause by dancing and enjoying 24 hours of music on a stunning four-region stage. Some of the best DJ’s in Second Life will be attending and providing the music as the backdrop to this amazing event.

The event also includes an art installation from 18 of the best artists in Second Life.

Please visit the One Billion Rising SL  blog to read more..and go along and show your support  for taking a stand against violence against women.
