1 Billion Rising

Sadly, violence against women continues in our society – but one local group is standing up in protest. 1 Billion Rising is a global initiative but will have a local feel on Friday. Joining us today are Maria Isabel and Alyssa Lai, communications coordinator from the Immigrant Women’s Centre, to tell us about it.
