in Martin Luther King Jr. Plaza in Palo Alto yesterday, member of the Boys and Girls Club of East Palo Alto joined the Raging Grannies, members of Code Pink, contingents from a local church, and women in heels who headed over from work to dance at an event to demand an end to all violence against women and girls.

One in three women worldwide will experience violence in her lifetime; subjected to brutal violations of their human rights, many are denied justice at the most fundamental level. On February 14 women, girls, men and boys gathered together for One Billion Rising for Justice in Martin Luther King Jr. Plaza in Palo Alto, as they did in many other parts of the world.

A few youngsters who had learned some of the moves in the preceding days amazed the crowd with their agility. Some even looked to be learning to fly.

Members of the Boys and Girls Club of East Palo Alto joined the Raging Grannies, members of Code Pink, contingents from a local church, and women in heels who headed over from work to join the event to demand justice for survivors and an end to all violence against women and girls.
