Aurora, IL: On February15 2013, at 6:30 p.m. "Within Evert Woman is a Goddess" will continue this event and join with activists around the world for ONE BILLION RISING, the largest action in the history of V-Day, the global activist movement to end violence against women and girls.
ONE BILLION RISING began as a call to action based on the staggering statistic that 1 in 3 women on the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime. With the world population at 7 billion, this adds up to more than ONE BILLION WOMEN AND GIRLS. On February15, 2013, the day after V-Day's15th anniversary, "Within Every Woman is a Goddess" will join activists, writers, thinkers, celebrities, and women and men across the world as we express their outrage, demand change, strike, dance, and RISE in defiance of the injustices women suffer, demanding an end at last to violence against women.
"When we started V-Day 14 years ago, we had the outrageous idea that we could end violence against women," said Ensler. "Now, we are both stunned and thrilled to see that this global action is truly escalating and gaining force, with union workers, parliament members, celebrities, and women of all backgrounds coming forward to join the campaign. When we come together to demand an end to violence against women and girls it will be a truly global voice that will rise up."
The women's Group "Within Every Woman is a Goddess" will present The Vagina Monologues, Friday, February15, 2013 at The Prisco Community Center, 150 West Illinois Avenue, Aurora, IL 60506. Appetizers will be served at 6:30 p.m. with the presentation to start at 7:30 p.m. Proceeds from this event will benefit Mutual Ground, Inc, the Illinois Coalition Against Domestic Violence and the V-Day Organization. The cost is $25 a ticket.

About ONE BILLION RISING: VDay Aurora - "Within Every Woman is a Goddess"
Within Every Woman is a Goddess!
Welcome to the World of Ze Marie!
Ze M More..arie has been a student of the Tarot, astrology and metaphysics for over 25 years. Through her extensive use of various oracle cards, she has tapped into the realms of inner workings of the mind. She is a firm believer, however, that you don't need to use cards to read the messages that the Universe sends to us. In our everyday lives, we have messages all the time to help guide us, whether it is a song on the radio or a passage from a book. If we are open to it, the Universe is always showing us the way to move to a more positive future.
Her truest passion however is the use of astrology.
Her use of astrology goes way beyond the newspaper
columns most people associate horoscopes with.
Through her studies she has found a way to unlock
some of the mysteries of why life's rocky spots seem
to be part of a bigger cycle. She believes if a person can go back to the true beginning of a situation, an event hidden in our psyche, you can open the door to true healing and transformation.
In the late 90's she started Ze's Oracle Parties which
allowed people to have readings done in their own
homes and explore different Oracles with friends. For
a while during this time period she created and
facilitated a group called Different Paths which
gathered people from many different religious
backgrounds to explore different beliefs. While she
does walk the solitary path in her belief system, she
does belong to the magical eclectic group called the
Circle of 42.
When looking to attend a retreat set up around the
Divine Feminine and the Goddess Energies, Ze Marie
could not find anything within driving distance that
was affordable. So she decided to do it herself. She set up her first retreat in 2009 at a beautiful nature sanctury called Lothlorien near Bloomington Indiana. Since the first INVOKING THE INNER GODDESS, she has held four more with the last one being attended by over 35 women.
In 2011, she started a local woman's group called
Within Every Woman is a Goddess.
Listed on meetup.com, she looks to bring women
together from all walks of life to honor their own inner divinity by studying the Goddess Archetypal energies and bringing them into their daily lives.Less..
