Peru And Chile Sign Joint Agreements To Increase The Sanctions On Gender Violence


During the 2nd Bi-national Cabinet between Peru and Chile, 14 agreements were signed, including several related to increasing the sanctions on gender violence.

“Taking place in the Chilean capital of Santiago for the first time, female leaders from both countries used the bi-national meeting as an opportunity to stand up against rampant femicide and domestic abuse that has marred both countries”, explained Peru Reports.

The joint agreement was signed by Ana María Mendieta Trefogli, Peru’s head of Women and Vulnerable Populations Ministry along with María Carolina Cuevas Merino, the Minister of Women and Equality in Chile, the aforementioned media said.

The upcoming actions between both countries include the promulgation of reforms to benefit those companies that show value and equality in their workplace.

“The basis of the reforms comes via information campaigns designed to defeat negative stereotypes to help prevent further attacks while also giving increased resources to those who have suffered from gender violence in the past”, Peru Reports informed.

Peru is currently one of the three countries in the world where there is more violence against women, according to data from the WHO (World Health Organization).
