Chilean anti-rape anthem becomes international feminist phenomenon

Feminists in Chile denounce widespread rape as a political problem, not just a moral one.

A feminist theater group in the Chilean city of Valparaiso wrote "A Rapist in Your Path," which took off in late November as the nation erupted in protests against social inequity and the country’s right-wing billionaire president. Videos of the song and its choreographed dance moves have grown worldwide and been adopted by other protesters.

“It was never intended to be a protest song. The women of the marches transformed it into something more,” Paula Cometa, a member of the theater group, told the Guardian.

Last week, thousands of women gathered at a former torture center in Chile, standing shoulder to shoulder to sing... “The rapist is you. It’s the cops, the judges, the state, the president.” [order changed]
