Peruvian President Pedro Castillo Terrones Saturday announced he was eyeing the use of mandatory chemical castration for rapists of minors, adolescents, and women in a move to curb the increasing number of such crimes. The initiative would require Congressional approval.
Bolivian Senator Erick Morón from the Creemos party has announced Tuesday he submitted a bill whereby chemical castration and life imprisonment would be added to the current Penal Code against rapists and murderers.
From quiet beginnings just a few weeks ago, The Rapist is You! - the creation of four performance artists from a Chilean feminist group - has turned into a mighty global roar against sexual violence.
