[Editorial] Argentina acts on violence against women and girls

14-year-old Chiara Paez from Rufino, Sante Fe province, Argentina, was murdered by her boyfriend in May, 2015. After a series of violent attacks against women and girls in the country, Paez’s death was a tipping point, sparking mass demonstrations nationwide. The protests are likely to have sped up the development of Argentina’s National Plan of Action for the Prevention, Assistance and Eradication of Violence against Women, which was launched on July 26.
