From 2015 until the cut of November 30, 2019, femicides in the country and in the State of Mexico doubled. In addition, this will be the year with the highest number of women murdered in both cases, both for gender reasons and for malicious homicides, according to the Executive Secretariat of the National Public Security System. 

NGOs At the national level, for example, of 411 femicides reported in 2015, 890 crimes have already been registered within a month of the end of 2019, that is, more than double. That amount also exceeds 56 the figure reached throughout 2018, which was 834. 

In the January-November 2018 period, 760 femicides were registered in the country, which means that 130 more women were victimized in the same period of this year, with an increase of almost 17.5 percent. Regarding the malicious homicides and also at the national level, in 2015 735 women were murdered, while until November 2019 2, 564 homicides were registered; The increase is approximately 48 percent. 

In 2018, in the January-November period, 2,466 files were reported for that crime, while in the same period of 2019 there were 2,564; This is 98 more murdered women, which translates into a 4 percent increase. In the sum of murders for both types of crimes in the country, in 2015 3, 256 were registered; until November of this year they had 3, 454, an increase of about 6 percent. 

Regarding the situation of extreme violence against women in the State of Mexico, the most populous entity in the country with more than 17 million inhabitants, the number of femicides also doubled, because while in 2015 there were 57 cases, with a cut to Last November 30 they added 108. That amount translates into an increase of 15 percent compared to those reported in the January-November 2018 period, which had 94 records.

  2. But nothing will done about it. At one time Women were respected in Mexico. Amlo doesn't believe the homicide numbers are up for 2019. 2020 should be worse. Another five years the Cartel should have control. Amlo will leave office a Rich Narco President.

    1. They do it to tally the murder rate of females. Men are in the homicide category.

  5. This is so bizarre... thousands more men are killed than women. good grief why talk about it like it's some thing different than a man getting killed? Are women somehow more special they deserve to be in a class of their own?

    1. Another dumbass... Ignorance is bliss around here. Funny you make the comment about being in a class of their own, like you've ignored history. Women have been treated like a lower class for 100's of years. Get over it and figure out a better way to contribute to the conversation instead of bitching about women being more special. Which they should be treated as such anyway and if anyone disagrees then sorry about your negative mother issues.

  6. The disrespect some of you have for women is sick! They are easy targets for those that do pray on them. There have been many women missing who are not involved in the drug trade. The fact that murders do not get investigated sure helps those serial killers... Because Mexico doesn't have those kind of people who pray on the women and children. Believe it or not there are many innocent who vanish especially because the Mexican law enables the killers.

  7. They invent a new word for murder so that they can further their propaganda easier and claim victimhood where men have it worse

    1. Not counting women involved in crime, any kind of crime incl Cartels, women ARE still victims of many abuses, such as being raped AND murdered for no good reason, often at the hands of drunken husbands and/ or BFs, physical abuse in the home, etc. No excuse for that.

    2. No matter how you spin it, men are more likely to die from unnatural causes than women. We also die younger. These are facts and not some political BS meant to further an agenda.
