Women in Paraguay live in a culture that has been undergoing rapid change in recent decades.
Indeed, Paraguay has one of the lowest percentage of women in parliament in Latin America, significantly lower than neighboring Argentina and Bolivia, although higher than Brazil. The legal response of Paraguay to domestic violence has been very weak, even by Latin American standards. 1,600 Against Domestic Violence (Ley No 1.600 contra la Violencia Doméstica), this law - while having a broad definition of domestic violence (including physical, psychological and sexual abuse "lesiones, maltratos físicos, psíquicos o sexuales" ) - is civil in nature, and as such does not provide for any sanctions against the perpetrators.
While the Criminal Code provides for a crime of domestic violence, this crime has a very narrow definition, as physical violence that is carried out habitually, and is punishable only by a fine.
