Many of the abuse survivors, some in wheelchairs because of their partners’ beatings, headed the march and read their testimonies in front of the palace that many in Peru don’t call “of Justice” but “of injustice.” There were also huge demonstrations in Cusco, Trujillo and Iquitos; and in 30 capital cities throughout the world. We now have an app that allows women to report harassment and assaults using their cellphones.”
