Mexico: Submission to the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women 2018

, Index number: AMR 41/8465/2018

Amnesty International prepared this submission to the United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women. The document sets out Amnesty International’s concerns regarding the Mexican state’s failure to comply with observations of the Committee on the combined seventh and eighth periodic reports in relation to violence against women, in particular murders of women for gender-based motives, also known as “femicides”, the gender alert mechanism, disappearances of women and torture and other cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment of women during detention, which is exacerbated in contexts of a militarization of public security.
