The other pandemic
Mexico City

Rising levels of stress, economic, food insecurity and isolation due to Covid-19, have dramatically increased levels of domestic violence in Mexico and require immediate action to protect women and children at risk. Calls to shelters, reporting violence have increased by 60 to 80% and asylum requests in these spaces have increased by 30%, according to the Red Nacional de Refugios. However, the level of domestic violence remains today underestimated by the government, which considers the facts as non-priority in the current situation. The context is such that, since the start of the confinement, the government of President AMLO has removed numerous subsidies intended for associations fighting against gender violence. Thus, many organizations and associations have had no other choice than to act on their own to respond to this health crisis and support women at risk. Social workers, activists, lawyers and psychologists ... are numerous to have mobilized to face this emergency situation. 

In addition, government campaigns to prevent domestic violence have been very limited since the onset of the crisis and what little has been achieved has been widely criticized by feminist activists campaigning against violence against women. 

 

The issue of information dissemination is also an issue that activists faced very quickly when lockdown began in Mexico in March 2020. I therefore wanted to produce a report illustrating the increase in domestic violence due to COVID-19, highlighting the solutions and possibilities available to victims. The aim is to give visibility to facts that the government refuses to consider, while highlighting the hard work of many social workers in the midst of a health crisis. 

By following the daily shelter for battered women, the psychological help for women victims of violence and aggressive men as well as the intervention of the gender police, this report offers a look at the second pandemic that affected Mexico: violence against women.
