Sheffield Rising (until the violence stops)

CAM Yorkshire’s Director, Patricia Daniel, convened the highly successful Sheffield Rising events on February 14th-15th 2013 which formed part of the global One Billion Rising campaign to stop violence against women and girls.

More than twenty local organisations actively supported the activities as well as many individuals. Around 300 people took part in the flash dance at Barker’s Pool at lunchtime on Valentine’s Day 2013. See the Sheffield Star video.

And about 150 people were involved in the Feb 15th evening performance of “A Memory, A Monologue, A Rant, And A Prayer: writings to stop violence against women” edited by Eve Ensler, who spearheads the One Billion Rising campaign. The commemorative programme can be downloaded here.
