This Saturday the non-governmental organization Latin American Association for Alternative Development (Aldea) presented a study on social networks where he mentioned that so far in the 2020 They have registered 81 femicides, of which 11 have been minors, averaging one case each 72 hours.
Of these deaths, 72 percent have been their own familiar surroundings and three others have been “transfemicides” or murders of transsexual or transgender people.
It should be noted that this situation has worsened due to confinement due to the coronavirus, where cases have increased compared to other years, since women have had to stay at home with their aggressors who, as mentioned, many of them have been from the family circle.
From the March 16 past (date the confinement began) to October 4, 62 femicides occurred.
Similarly, it was highlighted that of the 30 percent of registered femicides in Ecuador, men already had a history of violence; while six percent of the victims had requested a “aid ticket“.
