Gender violence survivor becomes voice for Me Too in Peru

Americas Now

Peru has one of the worst records for intimate partner violence against women.

A victim, whose case went public, has unintentionally become the face of the Me Too movement in the country.

Arlette Contreras was just 25 years old when a video of her boyfriend attacking her went viral in Peru.

It was the catalyst for the first march against gender violence and the largest protest the country had ever seen.

Four years later, she’s one of the region’s Me Too movement leaders.

Correspondent Dan Collyns reports on her long legal battle to bring her attacker to justice.
