Because Dance and Music Have the Power to Heal

Just in time for GOLDENROOM’s issue on Music and Art, Anoushka Shankar, daughter of the late Ravi Shankar (who in a strange coincidence is this month’s GOLDENROOM Cross Cultural ICON) asks the question:

What’s cute about what is going on in the world today to women?

What is naive about wanting to change that world?

Reflecting on GOLDENROOM’s Freshly Pressed post about Rema Begum, it is with great poignancy that Anoushka shares her own very personal story about why on the 14th of February 2013 she will be Rising.

One Billion Women and those that Love them, are invited on 14th of February 2013 to Walk Out, Dance, Rise Up and Demand an end to violence against women.
