SPANISH VERSION: A shadow report released by the National WHRD Network in Mexico and presented at the 52nd Session of the CEDAW Committee, confirms that within Latin America, Mexico ranks first in attacks against journalists and second in attacks against women defenders. There has been an alarming increase in violence against women human rights defenders in Mexico. The violence has been made invisible and underestimated in its seriousness, characteristics and consequences, in the context of widespread impunity, violence and criminalization of social protest in the country.

Read the recommendations given to the Mexican government by the 52nd Session of the CEDAW Committee.
