By Anuradha Dutta, Kolkata, Feb 10 : They came, they sang and they won the hearts, 'Betty', the all- woman pop-rock band from the USA came with a strong message 'Rise', which called on the people of India and the rest of the world to crush gender based violence in every form, here.

Elizabeth Ziff, Alyson Palmer and Amy Ziff, the soul and spirit of band 'Betty' performed at the International Council for Cultural Relations recently, where they crooned some cool numbers like 'Did You Tell Her', 'Metro' and 'Its just love', much to the liking of the crowd assembled at the concert.

Known as the 'unstoppable activists', the women of 'Betty' used their clever words and strong music in support of equal rights, peace and empowerment of the fairer sex.

The band paid a musical tribute to ordinary people, who take the fight against the tyranny of the strong and powerful in their stride, with the song 'Hercules'.

The electric performance of the band culminated with the rendition of 'Rise', a song penned by the band in support of Eve Ensler's global campaign 'One Billion Rising' to end violence against women and girls.
