Femicide in Mexico continues to be chilling problem

Mexico's crisis of femicide has risen to 70 percent:
Violence against women and girls in Mexico has increased over the last five years, the statistics office said in a survey that found seven in 10 of them reported experiencing some form of violence.

"Violence against women continues to be a challenge in the country and constitutes a public health problem,"
the president of the national statistics agency INEGI, Graciela Marquez, told a news conference on Tuesday.

Mexico's soaring rate of femicide - the killing of women and girls because of their gender - has sparked waves of protests. On average, some 10 women are killed every day and tens of thousands are missing.

INEGI estimated that more than 70% of 50.5 million women and girls aged over 15 have experienced some kind of violence, up four percentage points from the last time it ran the survey in 2016.

Reports of sexual violence increased the most, up eight percentage points to reach half of all women surveyed; 23% of whom said they had experienced this in the last 12 months.
Many Mexican women are also rightfully outraged over the lenience involved:
Activists have long accused authorities of not doing enough to protect women in abusive relationships. Many also insist the term “femicide” is necessary to give murders of women more visibility and ensure sentences fit the crime.

The same judge who freed Mr García is now also under scrutiny for another decision: the release of a doctor accused of raping a female patient. Mexican media say Mr González insisted the evidence was insufficient.

Ms Pérez was killed on 25 November, the date the United Nations has designated the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. Events to mark the day were held across Mexico before news of this particular case was public.
Sadly, based on how the UN is soft on Iran, including their violations of women's rights, that's exactly why whatever they're supposedly going to address when it comes to Mexico rings hollow. Something must be done to stop femicide in Mexico, and protect women and children who have the terrible misfortune of suffering from it. But the UN's not the outfit qualified for the job, based on their own pathetic track record.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
