Being a woman in Guatemala isn't easy. The small central American country has one of the highest rates of femicide in the world, with at least two women murdered every day. Being an indigenous woman in Guatemala is even harder. In addition to the physical, psychological and economic violence experienced by many Guatemalan women, indigenous women also face significantly higher rates of poverty, illiteracy and racial discrimination. Between 50 and 90 percent of indigenous women in rural areas cannot read or write and one in three have no access to healthcare or family planning services.
