Great New PSAs from Reacciona Ecuador

English transcription:
Lucia, 6 years old: raped by a family member
Awak, 29 years old: raped by coyoteros (people who are hired to bring people across the border illegally--they often take advantage of their clients, and sexual abuse is one of the things they do)
Cecilia, 73 years old: Assaulted and raped in her home
Maria, 22 years old: Harassed and raped at her university
Jacinta, 13 years old: Pregnant from her rape
Rape leaves permanent marks. If you are a victim or know of a case, report it to 101 (9-11 in Ecuador).
Narrator: Ecuador Reacts: Male chauvinism is violence.



Woman speaking: We're going to give you 30 seconds for you to give us 1 reason why you think, as women, we are inferior to men. (30 seconds of multicultural women not coming up with a reason.) There does not exist any reason. However, 80% of Ecuadorian women have experienced the violence of male chauvinism. No more.
Narrator: Ecuador Reacts: Male chauvinism is violence.


Man speaking: We're going to give you 30 seconds for you to come up with one reason for why we, as men, are superior to women. (30 seconds of multicultural men not coming up with a reason.) There is not even one reason. Why then have 80% of Ecuadorian women been victims of violence from male chauvinism? No more!
