Activists protested on Wednesday against gender-related violence and the murder of a 16-year-old girl in a coastal town of Argentina last week.
The group known as Not One Less organized the protests and summoned tens of thousands of women across Argentina to voice outrage over the death of Lucia Perez.
Last week Perez was drugged with cocaine and had suffered "inhumane sexual aggression" that triggered cardiac arrest, according to prosecutor Maria Isabel Sanchez.
"They washed her body and dressed her to make it look like an overdose," she said.
Two drug-dealers who traded drugs outside a school were detained in Mar del Plata on Sunday and have been charged with rape and homicide.
According to Permanent Assembly for Human Rights, every 30 hours a woman is killed in Argentina.
