A handcuffed suspect is seen before entering a court that deals with gender-based crimes in Guatemala City July 3, 2013. A large proportion of women in Latin America and the Caribbean have experienced sexual violence, mostly committed by men they know, according to a report produced by the Pan American Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The study states that over a quarter of women surveyed in both Guatemala and El Salvador said they had experienced physical or sexual violence from a partner, among women aged 15-49 who had ever been married or lived with a boyfriend. November 25 marks the UN's International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. The man was accused of being a member of a gang that kidnapped and raped 14 women between March and June 2012. Picture taken July 3, 2013.
