‼️FEMICIDE IN MEXICO; A VERY INFORMATIVE THREAD ON WHAT‘S HAPPENING IN MEXICO
this is a very big issue that no one talks about‼️
❗️If you’re gonna tweet about this make sure to use these hashtags #NiUnaMas #NiUnaMenos which are feminist slogans❗️
before we start; it is absolutely okay to not know everything that is happening in the world but that is why i am doing this thread.
i know it can be hard for some people to understand the carrds because they can’t translate them.
i hope i will be able to help you!
also a huge thank you to @BruhGriffin_ for making me aware about this situation!!!
‼️the next tweet will be a short summary for people who get triggered very easily by sexual violence and murder but still want to know what is happening
basically it’s very difficult and dangerous for women to live in México (this is described very harmless). The government doesn’t believe the victims and makes themselves the victim.
from now on
‼️TW: physical sexual violence and murder

WHAT IS A FEMINICIDE OR WHAT IS FEMICIDE?
to explain it very simple; femicide means that women and girls are being killed because of their gender (mostly by men).
This issue has been going on for a long time now.
Last year there has been 1006 homicides where women have been killed at home. It is possible that there were even more homicides because not all of them are being registered.
The corruption in México is so strong that police don´t investigate deeper into most of these cases because they are being paid to remain silent about it.
Only 3 out of 100 cases are proceeded.
Here is a carrd where you can get deeper information about México‘s corruption

Let’s continue with the femicides.
Since March 23rd there is a lockdown in México due to COVID-19. This has made the situation for women who now have to stay at home with their husbands worse.
April was the deadliest month in the past 5 years with a record of 267(!!) murders of women.
According to the government data 987 women have been murdered in the first half of 2020 which is almost as much as in the whole last year.
BUT not only women have suffered, also their children.
46% of the women’s kids who had asked for help were victims of domestic violence during quarantine.
8% (almost 500 kids) were victims of sexual assault while staying at home.
GOVERNMENT ACTIONS?
This is what President López Obrador had to say "his government has been the one to protect mexican woman the most and that his opponents go as far as to call themselves feminists just so they have something new to criticize him on"
The government doesn’t take the femicides seriously and President Lopez Obrador even has gone as far as to say that most of the emergency calls made to women shelters are most likely fake.
for anyone who got triggered by this here’s a thread for breathing exercises
⁉️WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP?
1. SPREAD the message; not many people are talking about it even though this is a very serious topic
2. SIGN petitions; here’s a thread with multiple petitions to sign
⁉️HOW CAN YOU PREVENT THIS HAPPENING TO YOU AS A MEXICAN?
1.ALWAYS tell at least 2 friends your location
2.in some phones you can set up the Emergency SOS which makes it easier and faster to call the police or call for help

3.DON‘T LEAVE YOUR HOUSE ALONE; always have someone with you. someone you can trust.
4. try to be as anonym as you can: make your social media accounts on private, remove your age and location from your bio, remove any pictures of your face from social media
STAY SAFE!!!!!
I got these information mainly from @HSL0TGOLDEN 's carrd and some other websites on the internet
here’s a link to that carrd
