On 14 February 2014*, we are escalating our efforts, calling on women and men everywhere to RISE, RELEASE, DANCE, and demand JUSTICE!

Activities in the campaign “ONE BILLION RISING FOR JUSTIC” in Viet Nam were  organized by Research Centre for Gender, Famiy and Environment in Devolopment (CGFED).  Those activities were attracted many people, specially girls.  Tran Phuong Thuy is a student at Vietnam University of Commerce. She was very highly enthusiastic to say: “ I really like dance and this activity was very meaningful to help for women, I am also a women in them. There are something that is hard to say for women but throught language, body, dance, women can express all. Dances also help women to be stronger and more closed together”


ONE BILLION RISING FOR JUSTICE is a global call to women survivors of violence and those who love them to gather safely in community outside places where they are entitled to justice – courthouses, police stations, government offices, school administration buildings, work places, sites of environmental injustice, military courts, embassies, places of worship, homes, or simply public gathering places where women deserve to feel safe but too often do not.  It is a call to survivors to break the silence and release their stories – politically, spiritually, outrageously – through art, dance, marches, ritual, song, spoken word, testimonies and whatever way feels right.

Mr. Vu Xuan Thai, he is 32 years old. He participated enthusiastically, he said: “ Viet Nam’s Women reconciled so to need many activity to call, promte stronger. About 58% Viet Nam’s Women suffer at least one time in our life by all form. Let to become the first person in 1 billion to join your hand to call to end violence against women and girl in Viet Nam. Let show your love with grandmother, sister, girlfriend, the people who you love in 14/2”

Accroding to the message of Break The Chain to use for dancing that women is the best person that rise to against before someone protect them. Throught the lyric of Break The Chain:

“I can see a world where we all live
Safe and free from all oppression
No more rape or incest, or abuse
Women are not a possession”

This campaign want to say to Vietnam’s women: “ There are something that is hard to say for women, Let the body say it and release themself throught body language”

“Dance is dangerous, joyous, sexual, holy, disruptive, contagious, it breaks the rules. 
It can happen anywhere, anytime, with anyone and everyone, and it’s free.
Dancing insists we take up space, we go there together in community.
Dance joins us and pushes us to go further and that is why it’s at the center of ONE BILLION RISING.
With infectious music and lyrics from Tena Clark, amazing vocals by a talented group of V-Girls,
and Debbie Allen’s bold choreography, 
Break The Chain is the anthem that will call up one billion to rise.”
