Preventing violence against women

CNDH urges legislators to approve the draft decree that declares January 16 National Day Against Femicide.

Last November 25 was published in the Parliamentary Gazette of the Chamber of Deputies, an initiative with a Draft Decree declaring January 16 of each year as the National Day against Feminicide, the date on which Marichuy, one of hundreds of women murdered in our country, was a victim of feminicide, and to highlight the urgent need to put an end to and eradicate the violence that daily kills at least ten women in Mexico and, to this end, requires the participation of all authorities, as well as organized civil society, citizens and the media. Women’s rights are an inalienable, integral and indivisible part of universal human rights, which are contained in the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW), the Convention on the Rights of the Child, the Inter-American Convention on the Prevention, Punishment and Eradication of Violence against Women (Belem Do Para) and other international instruments on the subject.
