Advocacy groups have asked women across Mexico to stay at home for the day, to demonstrate against shocking levels of gender-based violence in the Latin American country.
Monday’s day of action follows mass protests on the streets of Mexico on Sunday to mark International Women’s Day.
Lidia Florencio was one of hundreds of women who took part in a march in Mexico City on Sunday, holding a banner emblazoned with the image of her murdered daughter, Diana Velazquez Florencio.
The 24-year-old was raped and killed not far from her house in July 2017. More than two years later, there is still no suspect, in the case. Her mother Lidia broke down in tears as she told CNN that “the government has done nothing to help.”
“Where is the murderer, where?” she asked.
Police have not responded to CNN’s request for comment on the murder, which officials classified as femicide.
Like many women CNN spoke to at Sunday’s march, Florencio said she was “demanding that the federal government take gender violence seriously.”
