Tens of thousands of protesters marched through the rain in Buenos Aires, Wednesday, in condemnation of violence against women. The protest was one of many across Argentina and the rest of South America, with similar rallies being held in Bolivia and Chile.
The demonstrators, who congregated at the city's iconic Plaza de Mayo square, carried banners, flags and pictures of female victims of violence.
The protest is the latest national outcry following the killing of a 16-year-old girl who was raped and tortured earlier this month in the coastal city of Mar del Plata. The victim, Lucia Perez, later died of her wounds. Her attackers have been arrested.
