In India, massive street protests have galvanized a movement to stop rape and violence against women. Help do the same here. Join women and our allies as we march in the streets to demand: "Stop Rape & Violence Against Women!". In the U.S., 1.3 million women are raped every year, but fewer than 18 percent of cases reported end in conviction. Friday and Saturday, March 8 & 9, International Womens day, Join us in the streets of New York, Chicago, L.A., San Francisco and Sacramento. Help us build a demo in your area.
