Global campaign to end violence against women launched in the Philippines

Women’s group Gabriela launched One Billion Rising – Quezon City last Jan. 17. Women from various urban poor communities joined them in dancing “Isang Bilyong Babaeng Babangon,” which is part of the global campaign to end violence against women.

Gabriela also launched V-Men Philippines, composed of prominent men in the country who they think have a track record of supporting the women’s struggle against gender-based violence. They are: Edgar “Egai” Talusan Fernandez, Senatorial candidate Teddy Casiño, Rep. Rafael Mariano, Carlos Siguion-Reyna, Leo Tavarro Valdez, Beau Agana, Chikoy Pura, Rito Asilo, Fr. Joe Dizon, Eugenio “Toto” Vilareal, Bobby Andrews, Mikee Carrion and Boy Abunda.
