The Wider Image: Brazil women suffer in silence as COVID-19 sparks domestic terror
A member of the Maria da Penha patrol visits a woman who says she was repeatedly hit by her-ex husband in Duque de Caxias, Rio de Janeiro state, Brazil, September 25, 2019. Reuters has not been able to verify the details of the alleged attack. Brazil introduced tough penalties for domestic abuse in 2006 with the Maria Da Penha law ? named after a woman left paraplegic after being shot by her husband in her sleep. However, it was not until 2015 that Brazil officially recognized femicide as a crime ? years after most other countries in the region, including Colombia, Chile, Argentina and Mexico.
