One Woman Rising sculpture unveiled on Thursday

Atlantans joined activists around the world in a global movement called, One Billion Rising on Thursday. The goal is to demand an end to violence against women and girls. A sculpture in support of the movement was unveiled in Freedom Park on Thursday, atop the hill east of Moreland Ave. The sculpture is a 12-foot tall, female figure intended to represent a woman rising in dance, which is the whole idea behind the one billion rising initiative.

The Chelko Foundation came up with the concept and enlisted the help of sculptor Phil Proctor. He says a project like this would usually take 6 weeks, but they’ve been asked to do it in a little. The sculpture will be on display at Freedom Park until March 30.

See a video report of the making of the sculpture from FOX5 here.
