El Salvador: Feminists Combat Violence against Women


From Nov. 25- Dec. 11, approximately two thousand feminists located across El Salvador mobilized through protests, speeches and more in a large scale initiative to combat violence against women.  AMS (Association for the Self-Determination and Development of Women), The Feminist Collective , the COMUN Collective, The Union of Women and other feminist organizations were leaders in this effort to demand that the government of El Salvador comply with its promises to quell the alarming trend of violence against women. 

The women of AMS, in conjunction with the Petateras and with support from JASS, presented their Report on Violence Against Women to the President of El Salvador on November 25.
