Femicide Symposium


NiUnaMás: Preventing Violence Against Women, Lessons from Mexico

Nearly one in three women experiences gender-based violence in her lifetime. For too many women, this violence escalates to femicide — the murder of a woman because of her gender. Join us in a discussion with activists, journalists, lawyers, researchers and community leaders who are working to end femicide in Mexico and beyond.

The symposium includes two separate panels discussing femicide in Mexico and potential solutions to the problem. The panelists from Mexico include: Alice Driver (journalist and academic), Kendal Blust (KJZZ journalist based in Hermosillo), Silvia Nunez (Sonoran representative for the Observatorio Nacional del Femicidio), and a lawyer.

The symposium will be live streamed (link available upon resgistration) in English and Spanish.

In addition, the symposium will feature a public screening of the documentary, The Three Deaths of Marisela Escobedo (2020, dir. Carlos Pérez Osorio), followed by a Q&A session with the director.
