Scottish Borders One Billion Rising Event – “1000 Rising”

Springwood Hall, Borders Union Showground, Kelso

Thursday 14th February 2013

The One Billion Rising event is based on the statistic that a staggering 1 in 3 women will be beaten or raped during her lifetime – that’s one billion women on the planet. The impact is devastating for women, girls, the men who love them, the countless people that care about them and for the world that we live in.

The Scottish Borders “1000 Rising” is based on the statistic that there are approximately 1000 victims and survivors of domestic abuse/sexual violence in the Scottish Borders right now!
