Argentine women come out to protest femicide

Thousands of women in Buenos Aires came out to protest the violence. Activists demanded that the authorities stop femicide. The reason for the protest was the recent death of a girl.

Ursula Bahillo was killed by her partner – she had previously accused him of beating her, but the police did not respond to the complaints. A total of about 50 women have been killed in Argentina since the beginning of the year. Demonstrations against violence have been taking place in the country since 2015.
