Mexico: Women's struggle for justice and safety: Violence in the family in Mexico

By AI International Secretariat, , Index number: AMR 41/021/2008

This report tells the story of many women suffering violence and describes the obstacles they face in accessing safety and justice in Mexico. It shows how women who try to report violence are often met with discrimination. New legislation to guarantee women's right to a life free from violence was introduced in 2007. Amnesty International calls for effective implementation of the new law and on authorities to adopt the organization's 14-point programme to ensure access to justice and effective protection for women suffering family violence.
