Gender-based violence in Peru

It’s not the first time the streets of Peru see such violence. In fact, it’s one of the countries together with other states in Latin America that has a huge problem with street harassment and women abuse.

In 2012, people created PAC initiative that’s translated as 'Let's stop street harassment'. It’s meant to help women fight the problem. Then, there is a platform called DATEA for women all over the world that gives them a chance to share their experiences with geo-reference.

Cruelty is not a solution

It’s necessary to voice the problem and stress upon the fact that being cruel won’t solve anything. It makes the problem even worse and leads to a huge number of side effects. People all over the world come to understand that and unite in the face of their common problems.
