Recently Mexico has been facing a considerable and seemingly uncontrollable increase in femicide cases. In 2019, more than 3,825 women were killed, and the rate of femicide in Mexico increased by 6 percent from 2018. Currently, 10 to 15 women are killed every day, presumably due to their gender. An analysis conducted by the national institute of statistics and geography—the Instituto Nacional de Estadística y Geografía (INEGI)— established that over 50 percent of Mexican women have suffered violence because of their gender.
