One Billion Rising FlashDance

On Valentine’s Day, a gaggle of Sheffield Slings parents went to a flashdance in the city centre – the One Billion Rising global event – and danced with their babies in slings to raise awareness about the terrible prevalence of violence against women and to be united in protest about this. One in three women on the planet will be raped or beaten in her lifetime..

It was great to be part of a worldwide movement and showing solidarity with our sisters in dancing together. Some of us had better moves than others – and Beth Roche of local Zumba fame helped us learn the routine!
