One Billion Rising
Lydia Espinoza, an organizer for the flash mob, said that one billion women, accounting for a third of the world's female population, will experience rape or physical violence at some point in their life. "The whole message is to tell women and men that it's not OK to abuse women or any gender for that matter, so today we'll rise, we will stand up and dance to free ourselves," said Espinoza.
