Guatemala's Alarming Femicide Statistics

Categories: Latin America, Guatemala, Women & Gender

“According to official statistics, seven hundred women have been murdered so far this year in Guatemala (see here [1] and here [2]). According to CONAPREVI, 838 [3] women were murdered in 2010. Therefore, if women continue to be killed at the same rate in November and December as they have been all year (an average of 70 per month), the number of victims this year will be nearly identically to last year's numbers (840).” Mike reports in Central American Politics [4].
