One Billion Rising is a global movement, founded in 2012 by Eve Ensler, to end rape and sexual violence against women. The "billion" refers to the UN statistic that one in three women, or about one billion, will be raped or beaten in her lifetime. The campaign expands each year. This year, OBR is set to escalate “risings” against all forms of violence against women, including the systems that cause other forms of violence: imperialism, fascism, racism, capitalism and neo-liberalism.
The Woman’s Club members are dedicated to the service of our community. We are a civic, cultural and education group, working closely with the NJ State Federation of Women's Clubs and the General Federation of Women's Clubs. We have approximately 110 members who all enjoy being involved in the club's monthly and annual service projects. Service projects include but not limited to: bra recycling, supplies for animals, Project Gratitude (gift bags to Veterans), operation holiday, scholarships for Morristown High School Seniors, baby layettes, Special State Project Prevent Child Abuse, domestic violence shelters, Howard's Mission, Candy Cookie for Spring Hills Assisted Living, Unicef, Seaman's Institute, local food pantry, lap robes and walker bags for nursing homes and the preservation of The Dr. Lewis Condict House.
