Let Her Decide (Peru)

In September 2012, feminist organisations in Peru launched the campaign Déjala Decidir (Let her decide) to support the decriminalisation of abortion in case of rape and to change a law which violates the women’s right to decide. The campaign raises awareness of the prevalence of sexual violence in the country, where 1 in 5 women experience sexual violence before the age of 15, and where 9 out of 10 pregnancies of girls under the age of 15 are the product of incest. Peru is among the countries with the highest rate of sexual violence in South America.
