REPLAY THE VIDEO: NOWCastSA webcast live from San Antonio's HemisFair Park on Feb. 14 as hundreds of people rose up and danced as part of One Billion Rising to demand an end to violence against women.

The march, strike and flash mob dance marked the 15th year for "V-Day," which is commemorated around the world. Our team distilled the two-hour event into a 5-minute video. Play it here:
