An anthem for the campaign to end violence against women

One billion is certainly in the zeitgeist.

V-day, the global campaign founded by four-time TED speaker Eve Ensler to end violence against women and girls, recently unveiled its One Billion Rising initiative. The name comes from the horrifying statistic that 1 in 3 women will be beaten or abused in their lifetime — on a global scale, 1 billion women will be effected.

It’s a serious topic, but also one that Ensler hopes will inspire women to dance. The campaign has just released this music video, Break the Chain, with vocals by Tena Clark, choreography by Debbie Allen (of So You Think You Can Dance), and direction by South African filmmaker Tony Stroebel. The singers you hear here will be making an appearance at TEDxWomen.
