WATCH: Flash Mob in Port Jefferson Protests Violence Against Women

Gathering coincides with a global day of action to end violence against women and girls.

A flash mob formed on Main Street on Thursday night in Port Jefferson to join other activists around the world for One Billion Rising, the largest day of action in the history of V-Day, the global activist movement to end violence against women and girls.

One Billion Rising began as a call to action based on the statistic that 1 in 3 women on the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime. With the world population at 7 billion, this adds up to more than one billion women and girls.
