This document includes 14 real testimonials woven across the country. These are experiences lived by girls and adolescents that most likely repeat daily within Salvadoran families across the four cardinal directions, in their neighborhoods, communities and departments. In all the 14 testimonials, the names, ages and places where the interviews took place have been modified to guarantee the safety of those who shared their story with such courage. Their life stories evidence family violence, sexual violence, generational violence, in short, all the modalities and types of gender-based violence.
