Little by little the feminicide has become daily issue in Mexico, especially since several murders began in Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, in 1993. Since then, there have been about 700 murders of women.
To remind the hundreds of women who have lost their lives, in different parts of Ciudad Juárez, the relatives of the victims usually put pink crosses in their memory.
Typically, the victims are young women and adolescents between the ages of 15 and 25, who have few resources and have had to drop out of secondary school to start working at an early age. Before being murdered, women are commonly also raped and tortured.
On the part of the population has been accused of passivity to the local and national authorities, since in many cases the responsibility of these crimes has not been clarified. The Inter-American Court of Human Rights has come to consider the Mexican State as one of the main responsible of these facts.
