    Santiago, Dec 5 (EFE).- Thousands of middle-aged and elderly Chilean women on Wednesday took part in the "Un violador en tu camino" ("A rapist in your way") dance routine, which was designed in Chile and has spread worldwide as a powerful tool of feminist expression against "historic abuse suffered by women in a patriarchal system."Organized by the women's group "Las Tesis Senior" at the gates of the National Stadium – located in Santiago's eastern Nunoa district – the demonstrators arrived from all areas of the capital dressed in black and wearing a red handkerchief and a blindfold.The choreography went viral on Nov. 25 after a group of women with black blindfolds over their eyes performed the dance in front of the Santiago's Palacio de La Moneda, the seat of the country's president, to mark the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.Since then, the routine composed by the inter-disciplinary women's group Las Tesis – originally from the coastal city of Valparaiso – has been performed in cities across the world, including London, Paris, Barcelona, Santo Domingo, Mexico City, Bogota and New York.
