01 Jan WITNESS Works to Fight Feminicide in Northern Mexico

Thousands of women have been murdered in Ciudad Juárez– a phenomenon called feminicide. Young women’s mangled bodies, often showing brutal signs of sexual violence, have appeared on the outskirts of Ciudad Juárez by the US-Mexican border. WITNESS partnered with Comisión Mexicana de Defensa y Promoción de los Derechos Humanos to produce Dual Injustice: Feminicide and Torture in Ciudad Juarez and Chihuahua.
