Carrie Ann Inaba recently Tweeted about One Billion Rising, a campaign to stop violence against women. But it’s not just women getting involved -- it’s key that guys represent for the campaign, and One Billion Rising shows this with their new video, “Man Prayer.”
There are approximately 3 billion women worldwide, and the beyond-disturbing reality is that one in three women will be sexually or physically assaulted at some point during her life. That’s one billion women, total. In the video below, men come together -- in different languages, from all over the world and ranging from a child to an elderly dude -- to say this has to stop!
So, my braddahs out there, how are you going to get involved to help protect your moms, your sisters, your GFs, your legit lady friends? While the momentum to stop violence against women is year-round, One Billion Rising will be taking place on February 14. You can grab yourself a toolkit to get involved, and see if there are any events happening near you. MTV has teamed up with One Billion Rising, so you can also keep checking back with us for more deets.
You could also check out the Man Up Campaign. It has the same Girl Power mission as One Billion Rising, but it’s specifically aimed at engaging young people. Whatever your age, sex, nationality, etc., you can stand with the women of the world and say, “No mas.”
