Women's Aid Dundalk inviting locals to take part in campaign at Market Square

Women’s Aid Dundalk have announced that they will be part of the One Billion Rising campaign again this year.

One Billion refers to the UN statistic that 1 in 3 women globally, will be raped or beaten in their lifetime.

Every year people rise – in hundreds of countries across the world – to show their communities and the world what One Billion looks like.

These communities rise through dance to express joy and community and celebrate the fact that they have not been defeated by this violence. They are rising to show they are determined to create a new kind of consciousness – one that calls for system change to end violence against women and girls.

Women’s aid Dundalk are inviting everyone, men women and children to come along and be part of this powerful campaign  and dance together through dance to “ Break the Chain”.

Anyone interested is asked to come along and join in the dance at Market Square, Dundalk on Friday 16th March at 2pm.

If you would like to be part of our campaign check out our facebook page www.facebook.com/womensaiddundalk for further information.
