A Peruvian Sex Worker is Running for a Seat in Parliament and Here’s Why

In her time as a sex worker, she has been the victim of abuse from both clients and the police. Villón wants to pass legislation that would curb violence against women.

“I’m looking to combat violence against women through education, a violence that starts when we are girls and it gets worse as we grow up,” Villón said about why she is running. “In the case of prostitutes, it’s unimaginable. The politicians aren’t interested.”

She is hoping to be a beacon of hope for Peruvian women who are being abused by their husbands or clients.

Villón is the founder of Miluska, Vida y Dignidad, Perú’s first organization fighting for sex workers who are the victims of abuse. According to the Associated Press, 95 women in Perú were killed by their partners last year, while another 186 suffered attacks by knives, guns, beatings, and strangulation.

Will she win? Only time will tell, but it’s clear that Villón is serious about changing the culture of violence against women in Perú.

El Chapo’s Text Exchange with Kate Will Give You Relationship Envy

After it was revealed that Kate del Castillo met with El Chapo to produce his biopic, Mexican newspaper Milenio published a transcript of the text exchange between the two. The last thing anyone expected was for Chapo to be such a charmer. Here’s a roundup of the sweetest things he said to his dama — P.S. Who needs a hot telenovela galán when you have the world’s leading man narco courting you?

From the beginning, he showed his interest for Kate like a smooth, suave casanova.

Unfortunately Kate hit him with the “it’s strictly business” line.

El Chapo got the hint and tried to convince her he also only meant business ?.

Before letting her know she needs an extra day at his ranch “para convivir.” Chapo, we see you.

Then he gave in again and told her he wanted to wine and dine her – even though it’s not his thing. But more charming than that was when he said how he’d look over her better than he’d take care of his own eyes. And Kate responded ?!

That line is better than anything from “The Notebook.” *Melting*

As he was planning his tequila date with Kate, he was in talks with his men to surprise her with a phone. Not just any phone, a feminine, top-of-the-line phone.

He went on to ask if they had a pink phone available. How did Kate get one of the toughest guys in the world to say rosita? Also, he knows women play it hard-to-get and don’t accept gifts right off the bat. How has he been living in a jungle and still knows all this about women, but guys out here just don’t get it.

He continued to let her know that they would do and drink whatever she wanted, even if it’s not his favorite thing.

He didn’t care to switch Buchanans for wine and champagne as long as he was in her company. Boys, are you taking notes?

And… Kate loved her surprise phone! ?

We need to take a second to admire his perfect spelling and grammar. That’s the real way to our heart.

The more the started talking about their date, the more they started to reveal their feelings for one another. Kate started to show she was interested in meeting him, because of who he is of course, and Chapo assured her like a knight in shinning armor, he’d take care of her.

And reminded her how amazing she is. He just cannot contain himself.

And the #1 sign she has feelings for you… The winking face.

He even knows to send a good morning text. But what gets Kate blushing is when he tells her he’s more interested in her than anything else. Fireworks!

You’re earning points when a girl tells you que la chiveaste.

Their relationship takes a turn when Kate ends her text with a kiss!

How cute is it that he keeps calling her amiga? So polite.

From there, neither one of them hide their emotions.

And he doesn’t hold back one bit, calling her the most beautiful and most intelligent woman IN THE WORLD.
