Mexico: In the midst of a femicide crisis, the 2022 budget must prioritize public policies to deal with gender-based violence

In the midst of a femicide crisis, national and international organizations urge the Mexican State as a whole, especially Legislators, to reinstate and increase funding for gender-focused programs which suffered severe budget cuts in 2020.

Legislators are especially urged to maximize resources available to programs to combat gender-based violence, by utilizing all the tools at their disposal, including fiscal and budgetary tools, with the objective of guaranteeing the rights of all women.

Organizations supporting this statement include: CEJILColectiva Ciudad y Género, Equality Now, Raíces Análisis de Género para el Desarrollo, and Mujeres Impulsando la Igualdad.
