El Salvador is one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a woman. Some 152 women were killed between January and May 2018 in the Central American country.

In response to the increasing violence, the government has now appointed a special prosecutor for femicide - the gender-related killings of women. This is the story of how the killing of journalist Karla Turcios changed El Salvador.
