On 15 April, relatives of victims of feminicide and members of women’s human rights organizations marched newly in Oaxaca City to demand justice, in light of the different cases of feminicide that have been presented in recent weeks in the state.It should be recalled that civil-society organizations have registered more than 197 feminicides (20 of which have occurred in 2013) and 57 disappeared women and female children during the administration of acting governor Gabino Cué (2010 to present). Ana María Hernández, member of Consorcio for Parliamentary Dialogue and Equity in Oaxaca, has declared that during the entire six-year administration of former governor Ulises Ruiz Ortiz (2004-2010) a total of 283 women were killed in Oaxaca. Hence can be seen the grave increase in the frequency of this crime.
