One Billion Rising
TTU Memorial Circle (2500 Broadway)
Cost: FREE

Press Release adobe acrabat PDF

On February 14, 2013, at 1:00 p.m., students of Texas Tech University will join activists, writers, thinkers, celebrities, and women and men across the world as we express their outrage, demand change, strike, dance, and RISE in defiance of the injustices women suffer, demanding an end at last to violence against women. ONE BILLION RISING began as a call to action based on the staggering statistic that 1 in 3 women on the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime. With the world population at 7 billion, this adds up to more than ONE BILLION WOMEN AND GIRLS.

VMEN Event

V-MEN: Steppin' Up
Hosted by Lubbock V-Men

V-Men started in 2009 with a workshop that focused on including men in the dialogue of violence against women. This V-Men workshop allowed men to tell their stories, just like women have done through The Vagina Monologues. Not only did this allow men to establish a context to come together on the issues of domestic and sexual violence, but it also allowed participants to be ground-floor collaborators on a new performance piece to be performed for the first time this coming February.  For more information contact by email Eddie Falcon
