“Violence Against Women and the Law in La Paz, Bolivia” with Dr. Ashley Rogers

What laws exist in Bolivia to combat violence against women? Where did they come from? How are they used by the women that they exist to protect?

In this episode of our podcast series, our South American Events officer, Maddie Whitehead, speaks to Dr. Ashley Rogers about her PhD on Violence Against Women in La Paz. Dr. Rogers completed twelve months of ethnographic research in urban La Paz about the connection between women and the law when it relates to gender based violence. She is currently a professor in criminology at Abertay University and uses her knowledge of the law to provide a legal perspective on the issue of violence against women in Bolivia.
