On the 15th anniversary of VDay, "Vagina Monologues" playwright Eve Ensler is going global with One Billion Rising, planned as the largest day of action in the feminist's long-standing commitment to ending violence against women and girls. In addition to the city of Atlanta declaring Valentine's Day 2013 "A Rape and Violence Free Zone" today (well, the intentions are good even if the reality is unlikely), some of Atlanta's most notable women, men and children are gathering this morning at the state capitol downtown starting at 10 a.m. Locals join One Billion Rising global gatherings in 203 countries in the effort to end assaults against women. Ensler's longtime friend and former Atlantan Jane Fonda is heading up the left coast rising today.
