One Billion Rising Honors “Revolution” as New Report Highlights Threats to Black Girls in U.S. (February 2015)

One Billion Rising is the name of a global movement in more than 200 countries to end rape and sexual violence against women. The campaign highlights the startling statistic that one in every three women on the planet will be raped or beaten in her lifetime — over one billion women. This year’s theme is “revolution.” We are joined by two guests: V-Day founder and award-winning playwright Eve Ensler, creator of “The Vagina Monologues”; and Kimberle Crenshaw, a law professor at UCLA and Columbia University, and founder of the African American Policy Forum, whose new report is “Black Girls Matter: Pushed Out, Overpoliced and Underprotected.”
