Rape and sexual abuse are widespread in Nicaragua, and two-thirds of reported rapes are against girls under the age of 17. Yet there is a total ban on abortion, even for rape survivors and those whose lives are at risk. On 28 September, the women and girls of Nicaragua will take to the streets to demand their rights. They will use butterflies created by people around the world as a symbol of hope and global solidarity.
Take action: create a butterfly
