Baja California

Tijuana among the first ranks in femicides

The border city is in first place at the municipal level due to the femicides that were registered last year.

UN Women (United Nations) in conjunction with the National Institute for Women (Inmujeres) and the National Commission for the Prevention and Eradication of Violence against Women (Conavim) released the report ''Feminicide Violence in Mexico: Approaches and Trends'' which revealed the ranking of Mexican states in terms of the index of femicides recorded in recent years.

In 2019, the report states that Baja California is in third place with a rate of 13.6 femicides per 100 thousand cases, only below Chihuahua and Colima, the latter taking first place with 20.3 femicides per 100 thousand, about four times the national average.

The report also shows the concentration of this type of case at the municipal level, indicating that for every 100 cases, 10 occurred in one of the municipalities that reported the greatest number of femicides, and it is the Baja California city of Tijuana that leads this ''top'' with the highest number of murders of women.

The situation of the Tijuana city has been so shocking that the study has described it as ''very serious'', because last year it managed to place itself in first place with 203 female deaths and a rate of 22.97.

Although Baja California has been registered as one of the states with the highest rates of female violence in the country, it is the State of Mexico that has achieved the first place the majority of times, in the years 1986, 1988 to 1997 and 2005.

The localities with the lowest feminicide rates are Yucatán (0.4), Aguascalientes (1), Campeche (2), Durango (2.2) and Querétaro (2.2). Unfortunately, no state in Mexico is currently exempt from this type of violence.
