The UP community, along with other sectors, celebrated the second year of One Billion Rising to end violence against women, with this year’s theme “Rise for Justice.” A program was conducted at Quezon Hall Friday, where various artists performed songs and dances in support of the movement.

The event was named such because according to surveys, one in every four women around the world experience violence in her lifetime. The event was also celebrated simultaneously in different parts of the country and worldwide.
