On Tuesday 14 February, University Women of Europe together with the European Women Lobby (EWL) and other members from all over Europe will be rising to say no to the sexual exploitation of women and girls !
The 5th edition of One Billion Rising will be an opportunity to express our demands to see a world free from sexual exploitation and prostitution, from male violence and oppression. We will rise everywhere, through different actions: dance, demonstration, events… The EWL will launch a social media action, with strong messages on home-made visuals!! A way to celebrate women’s creativity, strength solidarity and togetherness!
EWL social media messages are based on visuals created by EWL staff members during an artistic workshop held in Brussels. Please download them below and share them on facebook on Tuesday 14 February, using the hashtags #1BillionRising, #RiseInSolidarity, #EndDemand, #ListenToSurvivors, #Youth4Abolition, #StopSexualExploitation.
Please share them with your members, so that they can use them too. Some are in French too, regardez bien! You have a lot of choice, between different messages, colours, visuals, creativity!
Please let us know what you plan to do for One Billion Rising: send us some photos, some webpages links, some description. We need to inform V-Day of the European mobilization, and show how we take action to end the sexual exploitation of women & girls!
Download and use the following visuals!
As you can see, some have free space for you to add your messages and/or logo.
Some have the logo of the Brussels’ Call, the European coalition campaigning for the Nordic Model on prostitution. So use the visuals according to what best suits you, whether or not you are a member of the Brussels’ Call and/or Youth4Abolition, whether you prefer to create your own messages. Some are in French too!
