Published by Brent Patterson on

On May 29, PBI-Mexico tweeted:

“Under the slogan ‘truth, justice and reparation’, relatives of victims of disappearance, femicide and homicide in the state of #Chihuahua, accompanied by @JusticiaPNH [Justicia Para Nuestras Hijas/Justice for Our Daughters], pay tribute and demand justice.”

On Facebook, they further note:

“PBI accompanies the acts organized by the relatives in the city of Chihuahua, who demand that the phenomenon of disappearances be visible, that searches continue and that full attention is given to the victims. They will do so on the 29th of each month.”

In March of this year, Martha Pskowski reported in the El Paso Times:

“Since the 1990s, murders of women in Juárez have drawn international attention. Chihuahua state now classifies femicide as the crime of killing a woman for reasons of gender. In 2022 so far, 26 women have been murdered in Juárez. According to the Executive Secretary of the National Public Security System (SNSP), on average 10 women were killed every day in Mexico during 2021.”

In November 2021, AFP also reported: “Mexico registered 736 femicide cases between January and September [of this year], following 975 cases in the whole of last year, according to official figures.”

That same month, The Globe and Mail reported that the number of women in Canada who were victims of homicide has risen over the past two years.

That article notes: “The spike – with 92 women killed in the first six months of 2021, an increase from 78 in the first half of 2020, and 60 in the first half of 2019.”

On March 7, Myrna Dawson wrote:

“The Canadian Femicide Observatory for Justice and Accountability (CFOJA) released 2021 numbers documenting the killings of 173 women and girls, primarily at the hands of men, on March 7. Since 2018, the CFOJA has documented the violent deaths of 700 women and girls, at least 90 per cent of which have been killed by men. This number includes 37 women and girls already killed in the first two months of 2022.”

Dawson adds: “For the prevention of femicide, this would also be a world free of misogyny.”
