One Billion Rising Join the Revolution – Break the Silence
But when I was born why did you abandon me and mum because I am a girl child?
You went to church regularly
Then why did you deny me of the same privileges of education as my brother?
But then why did you torture me for dowry?
But yet you paid me less than my male colleagues for same work?
But then why was I wounded when I broke the silence?
But then why do you pollute our rivers take away our natural resources?
And force us to migrate to unknown lands?
Tell me why you make us refugees
And our sons terrorists and daughters sexual slaves ?
Sing songs of love stripped of violence to break the silence,
Rise as Christ has risen to set us free.
Dance with rhythms of power of broken body to share your stories
