Femicides in Latin America

Femicide, the murder of a woman based on her gender in particular by a man, continues to plague Latin America. From Mexico to Argentina, femicides have skyrocketed only to be met with impunity at all levels of government.

But resistance is growing. The epidemic of gender violence has united women of all races under the rallying cry, "Ni Una Menos," or "Not One Less."

In the memory of Yuliana Samboni, Lucia Perez, Jennifer Antonio Carillo and the countless other victims of gender violence, teleSUR explores the roots of the femicide crisis, the failure of the justice system to address it and the resistance movements rising up to demand an end to violence against women.
