Mexican Murals - Worsening Situation For Women
Not far from where I live, in the neighborhood of *San Miguel Chapultepec* (the exact location is the corner of *Molinos del Camo* and *Francisco Fagoaga* just before it runs into *Avenida Constityentes*), there is a mural that has been up for several years. The visual image is not particularly spectacular, being rather modest in size and reserved in its range of colors.

https://i.imgur.com/zZipV9N.jpg

Its message, however, is more than clear, sending a shiver down the spine if you stop and think about it. This is no abstract art, with curious symbolism, dependent on the viewer's interpretation. Instead, there is an objective fact being communicated: 

## Every Day Six Women Die as a Result of Gender Violence

The image painted in black, white, and gray tones, shows a woman standing next to the outlines of six bodies, painted on the ground like in a crime scene investigation. On her shirt she's wearing the portrait of one of the victims, as she may be wondering whether she is next to be killed.

https://i.imgur.com/QkEKPqT.jpg

Next to this image, the greatest part of the mural is painted plain yellow, with the lettering informing us of this sad statistic. Above and below, we learn that this wall was dedicated by [ParedesVsCensura](https://twitter.com/hashtag/paredesvscensura?lang=bn) to share this information. The signature on the right side tells us that the artist who painted this mural is [Ale R Antillón](https://twitter.com/alejandra_ra), on whose [Twitter profile](https://twitter.com/alejandra_ra) the same mural is used for background. The year she painted this was 2015.

## Fast Forward to Now: The Only Thing That Has Changed is the Number

Only six blocks further, on the *Diagonal Patriotismo*, there is another, very similar mural, painted only this year. It shows the face of a woman, this time a certain person, named **María Jesús Jaimes Zamudio**. She was a nineteen year old girl, who died as a result of being thrown out of the window of her own apartment, as we can learn from the [artist's Instagram page](https://pikstagram.org/geurch). On the two sides of her portrait the word read *NI UNA MÁS* that is "NOT ONE MORE".

https://i.imgur.com/8P8WRSJ.jpg

Further out on the two sides of the picture, as well as on the sidewalk below it, the updated statistic can be read: **In Mexico Nine Women Are Assassinated Every Day.** That means, in the last four years, since 2015 when the first mural was painted, **the rate of feminicide has increased by 50%!!!** Let's stop for a second to consider this horrible development.

https://i.imgur.com/TlW6yjE.jpg

The artist behind this second mural is [Geurch Stencil](https://pikstagram.org/geurch) whose [Instagram page](https://pikstagram.org/geurch) show us that he has created a number of similar murals, remembering the victims of feminicide.

Today's sad reality. Gender-based violence has been on the rise and what could be considered an aberration is now a natural fact that is more frightening due to the lack of success in dealing with it on the part of the authorities and the lack of education in the matter. Human consciousness is reduced, without knowing what resources to expand in order to stop this barbarism. There are so many factors that influence the phenomenon that actions to counteract it are losing effectiveness and instead of diminishing, it has grown over time.
But, it is necessary to denounce and draw attention to this case, as do these street artists you refer to in your publication, @stortebeker and your own work of bringing to another type of public lecture the reference to the problem. Good job, my friend!
