Trailblazers: The CCTV images that sparked a movement – BBC News

Cindy Arlette Contreras sparked a women’s rights movement in Peru when CCTV images emerged showing her ex-boyfriend dragging her through a hotel reception.

Arlette refused to accept the one-year suspended sentence her attacker received for the lesser charge of assault, after the court dismissed the more serious charges of attempted murder and rape.

She joined forces with others to launch Peru’s grass roots ‘Ni Una Menos’ (Not one woman Less) movement.

Reporting by Hannah Gelbart. Produced by Elaine Jung. Filmed and edited by Derrick Evans.
