“I was drugged, I was very groggy, there were lots of people with guns, lots of young guys laughing and talking,” she said.But the girl’s suffering didn’t end there, revealing the extent of Brazil’s problem with violence towards women and its culture of victim-blaming.Her voice distorted to hide her identity, she told a primetime magazine TV show on the weekend how she received death threats in the misogynistic backlash that followed, and which also included accusations that she is a gangster’s moll who takes part in orgies in exchange for drugs.

Threat to Teenage girl by Rapists In Brazil,Brazil shocked
The initial police reaction has been labelled insensitive. There have also been comments, including death threats on social media, blaming the girl herself for the attack.”It not only hurt me, it hurt my soul, because people judged me,
They tried to blame me for something which was not my fault. They robbed me, not just in material goods, but in a physical way.”the teenager has become the pixelated face of a campaign against rape culture in a country where a woman is raped every three hours. Demonstrations were held in Rio and Sao Paulo on Friday. Tens of thousands are expected to take to the streets in simultaneous protests across the country this Wednesday in support of the thousands of Brazilian women raped every year who are then often shamed and blamed by society and the authorities.At the same time as strangers flooded the girl’s Facebook page with insults, the then lead investigator appeared to encourage mistrust in the girl’s account.
A police woman has now taken over the investigation since her predecessor was blamed for not taking the crime seriously enough.
Brazil Government Reaction on 30 Men Gang raped in Brazil
“She needs protection,” said Cristina Bento, police chief for crimes against minors. “She needs care. A rape crime did happen. Now what I’m trying to find out is the extent of this rape, how many people were involved.
“I want to collect all the evidence and present it to the prosecutors’ office, so they can present a robust case and all involved can be condemned for the crime they committed.”
This was despite the video showing a man assaulting the girl’s unconscious body while another voice said she had earlier been raped by “more than 30.” Another man is heard saying: “Look how it is. Bleeding. Look where the train passed.” A selfie posted on Twitter showed a man in front of the girl’s naked, and apparently drugged, body.
The girl’s lawyer, Eloisa Samy, also claimed that Thiers had asked the victim whether she had “a habit of participating in group sex,” and whether she had been “co-opted by drug traffickers to work with them.”
“When the very officer in charge of the investigation into a case of gang rape positions himself with the clear intention of criminalizing and blaming the victim, even with all the media attention, it is easy to see what makes so many women — victims of rape and sexual violence, ignored by the media — fail to report their attackers,”
Samy said in a post on Facebook. Samy is no longer representing the girl, who has entered a police protection program.Brazil’s Congress last year passed new laws to increase sentences for violence against women. But rights groups say at least 500,000 sexual assaults take place in Brazil every year.
