Women and Domestic Violence in El Salvador

In this house we want a life 
free of violence towards women.  
En esta casa queremos una vida libre de violencia hacia las mujeres.

  This photo was taken in Suchitoto.  The image and words are to be found on walls all over the town.  In the time that we’ve been here, I’ve seen various campaign ads on buses and billboards to help raise awareness and protection for women living the reality of domestic violence.  I’ve also seen the President speak about it on TV and read various news articles expressing the dire situation and the need for change.  I’d like to think that the visibility of these campaigns is a sign that El Salvador is on the right path.
