Violence against women in Guatemala reached severe levels during the long-running Guatemalan Civil War , and the continuing impact of that conflict has contributed to the present high levels of violence against women in that nation. Femicide in Guatemala is an extremely serious problem. According to a report by the Small Arms Survey , Guatemala has the third highest rate of femicide in the world, behind only El Salvador and Jamaica. Murders rarely result in any conviction and often are not properly investigated; less than 4 percent of all homicide cases result in conviction for the perpetrators. This culture allows women to be treated as objects rather than humans; equality and basic rights granted to men are not even in question for women. Women who work as public activists, such as human rights defenders, including activists working to protect land and natural resources, face violence, threats, reprisal, and illegal arrests.

Why did 41 girls die at a Guatemalan youth shelter?
Prostitution in Guatemala is legal but procuring is prohibited. Child sex tourism is a problem in the country especially in areas such as Antigua and Guatemala City. Human trafficking is also a significant and growing problem in the country, particularly the exploitation of children in prostitution. Many women and children are brought into the country from El Salvador , Nicaragua , and Honduras by organized rings that force them into prostitution.
Indigenous women in particular are pushed aside and suffer racism and violence, campaigners say. Some eight million indigenous people live in Guatemala, most descendants of the Mayan civilization that once dominated Central America. Four in five are poor, and they are nearly three times as likely to live in extreme poverty than others in the country, according to the World Bank. They earn less money than non-indigenous people, more often working in informal jobs picking crops or selling street food.
