2013 One Billion Rising

Yesterday St George's students took part in the One Billion Rising worldwide flash mob event, in an act of solidarity against violence experienced by women. This was one of hundreds of flash mob events planned around the world and in Rome yesterday.

The event aimed to rally one billion men and women in 189 countries to dance in protest over the violence experienced by the estimated one billion women around the world.

St George's students gathered together during Period 3 to follow a dance devised and choreographed by Rachael Mossom. To maximise the impact of the event, tutors will follow up by discussing the issues behind the campaign with their students during tutor time.
