Walkabout for Life (@Pie de pagina)
On February 1st, the initiative “Walkabout for the Life and Freedom of Women” and against femicidal violence was carried out following a call launched by the movement “Take the Night and the Streets. “
The main objective was to raise awareness about the attacks that women continue to suffer in public spaces. It was started in response to the controversial proposal of the deputy from Veracruz, Miriam Ferraez Centeno, to establish a curfew as a solution to the femicides that affect the country and to “safeguard” the integrity of women.
It is worth remembering that in the first 28 days of 2019 there were 133 feminicides in Mexico, despite the fact that 18 states have decreed gender-based violence alerts against women.
