This was the second year of 1 Billion Rising, a gathering of women all over the world, dancing to end the violence against women. This violence takes place daily in every state of this country and in every country around the globe. Tewa women brought this banner. I was struck both by the artistry of the banner but also, poignantly, by the need to gather publicly to address this shameful state of affairs.
