Thousands of women protested in New Mexico City after police officers raped underage girls.

The women organized the demonstration under the slogan “They do not protect me, they rape me” and began peaceful and then turned into confrontations when some demonstrators set fire to a police station.

In early August, a 17-year-old said four policemen raped her in a patrol car in the Azcapotzalco neighborhood north of the Mexican capital.

The next day, a 16-year-old girl announced that a policeman had raped her in a museum.

According to Skoog, changes in aspects of behavior and culture are essential to eradicate this problem.

“Such violence has been detected in the less-cited group of people who are less concerned about gender differences.
