Me at the protest #NiUnaMenos. #NiUnaMenos was a demonstration against gender violence organized countrywide. La Matria, in conjunction with many other NGOs, backed this protest and helped organize. In Argentina gender violence is big issue, NOGs estimate an average of one gender related death every 30 hours.
