Gang rape of 16-year-old Brazilian sparks protests
Protests are taking place across Brazil over violence against women after a 16-year-old girl was gang raped.
On June 6, police in Rio de Janeiro made public a cellphone video taken by one of the alleged attackers showing the victim pleading for them to stop.
The next day, Copacabana beach was covered by 420 pairs of red and white underwear— a number chosen by the NGO Rio de Paz, to mark the number of women raped in Brazil every 72 hours.
Stephanie Nolan, the Latin America bureau chief for the Globe and Mail joins The Current to provide details about the case, and explain what the reaction reveals about culture in Brazil.
