Cool Pick of the Week

one-billion

One Billion Rising: Rise Up Dance 
Sat. Feb. 10, noon at the State Capitol Bldg. 490 Old Santa Fe Trail

Join other pro-woman activists outside the Capitol to dance in celebration of revolution. “We dance because it’s visceral,” the org One Billion Rising writes. “By doing so we get back into our bodies, it connects us to ourselves, we feel the ground beneath us and we can feel the power of the people in front of us and behind us.”

One Billion Rising was created in 2013 in response to the UN statistic that 1 in 3 women will be raped or beaten in their lifetime—that translates, yes, to 1 billion women.
