durham-women-risingAs part of the Durham Women Rising Festival, Durham Women Rising will be hosting One Billion Rising For Justice: A Public Awareness-Raising Event in Durham on Friday 14th February 2014.

One Billion Rising for Justice will take place 11.30am-3pm in Durham Market Place, and will include: music from the Ladies of the Midnight Blue (http://www.hannabiell.com/ladies-of-midnight-blue.html);  speeches from the Police and Crime Commissioner Ron Hogg, MP Roberta Blackman-Woods, and Nicole Westmarland; information stalls, and much more.

Durham Women Rising, based on the global One Billion Rising project, aims to empower women and girls in the county through creative endeavours, support work and campaigning.

Durham University Centre for Research into Violence and Abuse launched the campaign in December last year as part of a bid to eliminate violence against women and girls in County Durham.
