After the brutal raping of a 16-year old girl by 30 men in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, different women's groups have carried out actions of rejection, as this demonstration in Goiania. The victim, who said she believed she would die, is now trying to recover from both physical and psychological trauma caused by the terrible act. Political reactions to this horrendous act have been announced, including a statement by UN Women, and the commitment of the interim president of Brazil to take effective measures to combat violence against women.
