One Billion Rising Campaign

About 1 billion women in the world’s population have at least once or twice in their entire lives been abused or will be a victim of abuse and violence according to the PNG Family Sexual Violence Action Committee (FSVAC).
Some women live under threat and fear even in their own homes and awareness on such issue is vital to ensure safety and help for women. FSVAC organises the ‘One Billion Rising Campaign’ each year to bring women and girls together to have the opportunity to celebrate their lives and at the same time strengthen each other and also get know the options for help when abused.
The campaign falls on Valentine’s Day (February 14th) annually and this year FSVAC is hoping to have the participation of more women.
