Gender violence is rampant in parts of Mexico. Women are being systemically targeted for brutal attacks, sexual violence, mutilation and murder. A series of presentations is scheduled this week in Missoula to exam Mexico’s plague of “femicide”. One guest missed her scheduled flight for the event because she was recently stabbed in the neck and face. In this evening’s feature interview with reporter Edward O’Brien, Mexican human rights lawyer Itzel Perez Zagal explains the various factors behind the shameful and unimaginable violence directed at Mexican women. Zagal is in Missoula, studying at the University of Montana. She says Femicide in Mexico started in the early to mid 1990’s.
