Support International Women’s Day by bringing domestic violence to a halt

From an email I recieved recently:

We’re writing to call on you to get involved in our campaign, Bell Bajao (Ring the Bell), calling on men and boys to join women in bringing domestic violence to a halt.

As you know, Bell Bajao, has been already reached millions across India and is encouraging unprecedented engagement on the ground.  We want YOU to be part of the action to promote women’s rights.

Breakthrough is celebrating  International Women’s Day on March 8, by celebrating all those who are speaking out, through their actions, their beliefs, their music or art.

Join the blog action week from March 2 – 8 on and tell us your stories. Write about those people who support women’s rights either through their passion, their work or in their personal lives.

Stories can include photographs, videos and other visual elements to be posted online. Do include a short description of yourself as well (name, age, location, any additional details).

You’ll be joining some amazing male leaders like  Bollywood actor and Bell Bajao ambassador Boman Irani. (
