FemSoc, in collaboration with the Centre for Global Women's Studies, DanSoc and Film Soc, are hosting a 1 Billion Rising Flash Mob on Tuesday March 7th at 1pm, in the open space to the side of the Arts Millennium Building.

1 Billion Rising seeks to raise awareness and call for an end to violence against women. The largest mass action worldwide, it employs dance as a creative form of protest and resistance. Placing a focus on violence against women, while recognising all forms of gender-based violence, we are calling on women, men and marginalised genders to RISE! There will be a choreographed dance so please come to show your support and dance along, if you would like to.
