IANSA women in Paraguay are campaigning for a comprehensive law to prevent, punish and eradicate violence against women and to include provisions to remove guns from perpetrators in cases of domestic violence.

Footballers Roque Santa Cruz and Salvador Cabañas posed for fans with t-shirts and posters promoting the campaign “Festejá el Fútbol Sin Armas!” (Celebrate Football without Guns!) during a friendly match between Paraguay and Chile in Asunción, Paraguay on 23 June.
