One Billion Rising

Filipino theater artist Monique Wilson flashes the No.1 sign with students from St. Scholastica's College, an all-girls' school, as they dance at their campus in a global kickoff campaign dubbed One Billion Rising, to end violence against women and children on Valentine's Day earlier today in Manila, Philippines. Thousands of women and children in various cities in the country danced in the streets, in malls and other places to express support for the One Billion Rising Campaign which also counts Australia and New Zealand as the first countries "to rise" for the campaign.

Question: Is there anything you personally can do to end violence against women and children?
