"Women Aren't Worth Anything" in Honduras

"In Honduras, a country with one of the highest murder rates in the world outside a war zone, gender-motivated violence has been running rampant. One woman is murdered every 16 hours in Honduras, according to Honduras’ Center for Women’s Rights. According to the U.N., more women in Honduras are subject to 'femicide' — the murder of a woman because of her gender — than anywhere else in the world."
