| V-Day is a global
movement to end violence against women and girls.
One in three women on the planet will be raped or beaten in her lifetime.
One billion women violated is an atrocity.
One billion women dancing is a revolution.
V-Day One Billion Rising was an invitation on V-Day's 15th anniversary - 14th February 2013 - to ONE BILLION women and those who love them to WALK OUT, DANCE, RISE UP, and DEMAND an end to this violence.
Participants included Robert Redford, Jane Fonda, Ruby Wax, Eve Ensler (Founder of V-Day and Author of The Vagina Monologues).
Denise's company BYCIA together with Butterfly Haven Children's Fund and OABI continue to stage events as part of this campaign. The Venus Rising Trilogy and Letters to Mandela by Denise have been presented at public events.
Denise's book In The Wings, which was launched in 2012 at the National Museum of Scotland, has already been performed in ongoing events featuring extracts from her book. These dramatised and choreographed debut vignettes are being performed internationally, starting in Edinburgh (Scotland), Sweden and Australia. Actresses include Emily Streete and Hayley Roberts, who performed/ produced Eve Ensler's The Vagina Monologues on V-Day 2011. Emily more recently toured with Scottish Opera's Tosca.
