One Billion Rising Flashmob at the European Parliament

On 29 January 2013 in Brussels, the European Parliament rose and danced with Eve Ensler in a One Billion Rising flashmob to call for an end to violence against women and girls. This initiative was led by European Parliament Vice-President Isabelle Durant (Belgium) with her fellow "V-MEPs" who performed The Vagina Monologues in the European Parliament in March 2012: Franziska Brantner (Germany), Marielle Gallo (France), Ana Gomes (Portugal), Kartika Liotard (Netherlands), Ulrike Lunacek (Austria), Sirpa Pietikäinen (Finland), Renate Weber (Romania), Cecilia Wikström (Sweden). They were joined by many more MEPs, including Michael Cashman (UK), Nikos Chrysogelos (Greece), Leonidas Donskis (Lithuania), Mikael Gustafsson (Sweden, chair of the EP committee on women's rights and gender equality), Jean Lambert (UK), Barbara Lochbihler (Germany, chair of the subcommittee on Human Rights), Baroness Sarah Ludford (UK, Vice-Chair of the ALDE Group), Marisa Matias (Portugal), Martina Anderson (UK), Judith Merkies (Netherlands), Joanna Senyszyn (Poland, Vice-Chair of the Subcommittee on Human Rights), Gabriele Zimmer (Germany, chair of the GUE/NGL Group), as well as staff at the European Parliament. www.onebillionrising.org
