Abuse and Murder against women in Michoacan

In the last three years the number of murders in Mexico increased by 77 percent, said the fourth Inspector General of the National Human Rights Commission (CNDH), Teresa Jiménez Paniagua.

By participating in the forum “integral protection of human rights for women against violence “, was organized by the agency of the Human Rights Commission forth State of Colima (CDHEC).

The official said, the increase in crimes occurred in the period 2007 to 2009, according the latest figures available. Meanwhile, he added, in the last quarter century from 1985 to 2009, upwards of 35,322 woman were murdered in the Mexico, yielding an annual average of 423 victims per thousand, with a national average of 2.98 crimes per year per 100 000 women.

Paniagua according to Teresa, the states with the highest rate of homicides committed against women are the States of Mexico, Guerrero, Oaxaca, Michoacan and Chihuahua. But also stands out above the national average rate are Nayarit, Morelos, Baja California, Quintana Roo and Colima.

On the other hand, she said that in the period from 2000 to 2008 there were 2,137 intentional homicides related to domestic violence, of which 45.2 percent were suffered by women.

Paniagua violence ranked as one of the big problems in Mexico, but “when we think that it is physical, but psychological, patrimonial, economic, labor and sexual assault being committed by fathers, husbands, brothers and children, which goes beyond the family and affects the whole of society, “he said.

The fourth Inspector General of the National Human Rights Commission today noted that the Constitution of Mexico, and virtually all state constitutions, have recognized the treaties concluded by the State for women’s rights, their equality with men and the need to protect the rights of indigenous people.

Also to be considered necessary is to open room for dialogue where society and government becomes more aware, and take responsibility for working together to achieve the goals and expected results. However, he regretted that according to figures available in 2004, Mexico ranks 97 out of 192 countries by statistics for homicide committed against women.

In 2010 the rate has increased in the state by the migration of women and in 2008 the mistreatment of girls per hundred boys have been 94.6 percent. “Violence against women, exposes them to suffer physical and mental trauma, sexually transmitted diseases, pregnancy and unwanted children, educational and social backwardness, poverty and economic dependence, unequal distribution of food at home and work and professional inequality, and work overload.”

CNDH explained that social inequalities are forms of discrimination and violence that acquired peculiarities in behavior between men and women, from a violent resolution of conflicts that concentrates power and decision-making. Because of this, he estimated, “the public, private and social must take steps to eradicate violence against women and think of nonviolence as a means of realizing their rights.”
