Danae Borax, spokeswoman for the faculty of law at the University of Chile, said the movement was born out of students’ concerns about the levels of physical, psychological and sexual violence they are exposed to. “An assembly with more than 1,000 women shows that this is a real problem and that is a concern,” she said.
