The number of women representing Colombia's judiciary remains low and this, in turn, exacerbates gender inequality problems in the country.

She says gender stereotypes make it "extremely difficult" for women to run for office in Colombia.

Andita Listyarini has been speaking to Ms Sanz about the barriers women face.
