V-Day Annual Report 2016 - ONE BILLION RISING: RISE FOR REVOLUTION 1 - Page 21

THE INTERSECTION OF ECONOMIC SECURITY, ending workplace sexual harassment, strong labor laws and the ability for women to thrive was amplified by many risings this year. In Cyprus, for example, the Women’s Lobby rose for the rights of domestic workers, sex workers joined the local Rise for Revolution march to end violence against women in Tanzania. The Workers Rising initiative is fuelled by the collective actions of grassroots workers around the globe who are fighting against the most severe forms of exploitation and inequality.
