Women over 40 are joining the protest started by younger Chileans to protest violence against women by men.

In a dancing intervention that has gone viral and encouraged women all over Latin America to speak up about their abuse, women in Chile have started a worldwide phenomenon.

Recently, thousands of women over 40 gathered to rehearse their performance of the song, A Rapist in Your Path.

Women in their 80s and older have come out in solidarity with younger women who go through trauma that lives with them forever.
