Colombia sets Guinness record in honour of women’s rights

Some 4,350 people gathered in Bolivar square in downtown Bogota set a new Guinness World Record by becoming the largest number of people holding up glow sticks simultaneously. They held up the sticks for one minute and dedicated the record to women’s rights, one day before International Women’s Day. Event organizer, actress Alejandra Borrero, said women should be respected. One woman is killed on average every three days and 55 cases of sexual violence reported daily. Many women are murdered at the hands of husbands, boyfriends and relatives in and around their homes.
