Women from all over Los Angeles will take part in a V-Day Flash Mob today, Feb. 14 at 4:30 pm outside Barnes and Noble at the corner of Third Street Promenade and Wilshire in Santa Monica.
It is part of the “One Billion Rising” initiative that calls for a stop to violence against women and girls based on the staggering statistic that one in three women on the planet will be beaten or raped during their lifetime.
At the flash mob, women will join activists, writers, thinkers, celebrities, women, and men across the world as they express their outrage, demand change, strike, dance, and rise in defiance of the injustices women suffer, demanding an end at last to violence against women.
