At least 10 women and girls are killed every day in Mexico. That’s according to a chilling new report published by Amnesty International, which also condemns Mexican authorities for failing to investigate femicides. The report, titled “Justice on Trial,” focuses on Mexico state — which accounts for some of the highest numbers of femicides in the country — and details how families and loved ones of victims are often forced to launch their own investigations as they’re ignored by law enforcement. Mexico recorded the murders of over 3,700 women in 2020 — only 940 of those killings were investigated as femicides.
