Ana Guevara Wants to Put A Stop To Gender Violence

Ana Guevara has been dealing with body-shaming bullies all of her life. The Mexican Olympic medal-winning athlete is known for competing in track and field and after she retired from running, she took on a new role as senator. Recently she was beaten in an attack she describes as a gender hate crime.

The incident happened in December when she was riding her motorcycle and a car hit her. She was upset because she was knocked to the ground so she went after the driver that tried to get away but was stopped as 4 men came out of the car and began to beat her.ana guevarra

Guevera posted a photo of her swollen and bruised face on Twitter and the next day she held a press conference in front of the Senate in Mexico City, condemning the crime and asking her fellow senators to take action on the issue of gender violence.
