"Women and girls in Bolivia remain at high risk of gender-based violence, despite a 2013 law that sets forth comprehensive measures to prevent and prosecute violence against women. The law created the crime of 'femicide' (the killing of a woman in certain contexts, including of domestic violence) and called for the establishment of shelters for women, as well as special prosecutors and courts for gender-based crimes. In July, the Attorney General’s Office reported that that 147 “femicides” had occurred in Bolivia from January 2015 through June 2016, and that prosecutors had obtained convictions in four of these cases"

"Rape and domestic violence remained serious and underreported problems. The law establishes penalties of imprisonment for 15 to 20 years for the rape of an adult.
