Femicide - the intentional killing of females (women or girls) because they are females

While femicides represented about 10 percent of all murders in 2019, the rate has increased exponentially, growing 145 percent since 2015. 77 percent of Mexican women report not feeling safe. Approximately 10 women are killed every day in Mexico, and the rate of femicide has doubled in the last five years. (csis.org)

In 2019, on average, 10 women were killed per day in Mexico, and the figure remained unchanged going into 2020. 209 women have been killed as stay-at-home measures were announced, with at least 163 of these registered as femicides, or crimes in which the women was killed because of her gender. Calls to report abuse or violence in the home increased overall by 22.7 percent between February and March. Then, the *president* claimed 90 percent of these calls were false reports.

For decades, administrations in Mexico have largely failed to address gender-based violence and femicides. Help the women in need by signing this petition.
