Pink, renowned for her stunning aerial acrobatics on stage, is earthbound but no less compelling in a new video to support One Billion Rising for Justice.
One Billion’s campaign demands justice and an end to violence against women and girls. In the joyous video, the singer and her tour crew dance to Debbie Allen’s choreography for Break the Chain, the One Billion Rising theme written and produced by Tena Clark.
On Feb. 14, 2013, One Billion Rising generated an enormous global action when activists organized tens of thousands of events globally and people in 207 countries danced to protest injustices suffered by women.
In a statement, Pink said, “I have never liked bullies of any kind. Whether it’s someone picking on the ‘fat’ kid, the ‘retarded’ kid, the ‘short’ kid, the ‘black’ kid, the ‘Asian’ kid, the ‘gay’ kid, the ‘girl’, cause she ‘hits like a girl’ or is the ‘weaker sex’…You name it. Different ‘reasons’, same ‘bully’. The bully is the problem. The bully needs a hug, a lesson, enlightenment. The bully is the one that really feels inferior, so he/she picks on someone else to make that person feel inferior too.
“When I read about this organization, how people get together of their own free will and dance, use their bodies, to express their rage- outrage- around the injustice that women feel all over the world, every day- I was inspired. I am a woman. I know women. I have sisters, strong and less strong, small and less small, Asian and black, gay and straight, Indian and Native American… We are all equally deserving of respect and personal space. I will fight for that right for all of us.
“And we come together to do so on our stage, with our brothers and menfolk- where we express our freedom every night. And that freedom inspires others to be free. We hope this video helps. And we hope for that one day when all women and girls are able to have respect, and personal space, and to be able to express themselves in whatever way THEY feel is right for them.”.
