According to UN Women, Bolivia tops the regional list with the highest number of femicides as this year alone there have been 98 violent deaths in the country due to gender.

“On the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, as a State and as a society, we must make a deep reflection to fight against femicides that blind the lives of so many women and the future of families and the country.”

The nation maintains high figures in recent years despite the efforts made by the Government to establish a rigorous  punishment of 30 years in prison for femicides. Nonetheless, the eradication of this social ill remains a pending issue in large swaths of Bolivian society, and worldwide.
