Womens rights in guatemala

Hello everyone, my cultural paper topic is about womens rights in Guatemala! This was not a new topic for me because I knew somewhat of what was happening in Guatemala but didnt know to what extent. Looking further into it I was shocked. So many women are killed by domestic violence and there are many children who are raped. Children who are giving birth at the ages of 10-14. This was so shocking and it made me very sad! Women are also not receiving the same education as men. Most women only receive 3 years of schooling while men get 8. I specially selected this topic because I have always had an interest in Guatemala itself. I love learning about their culture. I also had little knowledge of the power struggle women were facing. So it seemed like a perfect fit. This topic fits perfectly into the paper because my underrepresented group is women and my spanish speaking country is Guatemala!
