La Paz, Bolivia, 1st September 2014. A Womens Rights activist carries a placard remembering Hanali Huaycho during a march to protest against violence against women. The march was also to repudiate recent statements made by several candidates during the current election campaign that appear to minimise the problem and discriminate against women. According to a WHO report in January 2013 Bolivia is the country with the highest rate of violence against women in Latin America, there have been 453 cases of femicide since 2006 during the current government.

Hanali Huaycho was a journalist who was killed in El Alto in February 2013 by her husband Jorge Clavijo Ovando, a police officer. She was stabbed multiple times in their home in front of their young son. Clavijo disappeared after the murder; a body was later found in forests in the Yungas region which was claimed to be his, the suggestion being that he committed suicide. Her family and many other people doubt this official version of events and claim a cover-up, citing irregularities in the investigation.
