i-icon World Bank Income Classification:Low Income The World Bank classifies economies for analytical purposes into four income groups: low, lower-middle, upper-middle, and high income. For this purpose it uses gross national income (GNI) per capita data in U.S. dollars, converted from local currency using the World Bank Atlas method, which is applied to smooth exchange rate fluctuations. i-icon Least Developed Country:Yes Since 1971, the United Nations has recognized LDCs as a category of States that are deemed highly disadvantaged in their development process, for structural, historical and also geographical reasons. Three criteria are used: per capita income, human assets, and economic vulnerability. i-icon Gender Inequality Index:0.575 GII is a composite metric of gender inequality using three dimensions: reproductive health, empowerment and the labour market. A low GII value indicates low inequality between women and men, and vice-versa. i-icon Gender Development Index:0.723 GDI measures gender inequalities in achievement in three basic dimensions of human development: health, education, and command over economic resources.

Strategic Note Outcome Progress Note Showing data of : 2022

By 2025, the Mexican State effectively implements regulatory frameworks, public policies and quality mechanisms that prevent and sanction all forms and manifestations of violence, particularly against women, girls and adolescents, to while guaranteeing access to quality services for proper care and protection for victims.

Progress was made in this outcome in 2022. The Spotlight Initiative has contributed to qualify and proper care for victims of violence through small grants issued to local organizations, prioritizing an intersectional approach for the provision of essential services and prevention programming for victims/survivors of gender-based violence. In Guerrero, small grants were crucial for building and strengthening a network of 40 women rights defenders, indigenous and afro descendants, who adopted juridical and advocacy strategies to address cases involving girls’ victims of forced marriages and other harmful practices, as well as a self-care network to prevent risks. CSOs in Chilpancingo have expanded their capacities to supply care services for survivors/victims of gender-based violence and increase their political influence. In Chihuahua and Ciudad Juárez, mothers/defenders searching for their forcibly disappeared and murdered daughters, in collaborations with historical CSOs from the women´s local movement, began a project for the dignification of two memorials in Campo Algodonero, as sentenced by the Inter-American Court of Human Rights, and Arroyo el Navajo, the second emblematic case in the region. Both memorials offer a stark reminder of a painful urgency of remedies and reparation for damage. CSOs strengthen their political role with federal and municipal governments. At the State of Mexico, young women victim/survivor of sexual violence can access to care services as well as remedies and reparation measures, through an urban, peripheric young-led organization funded with small grants for recovery, safety and self-conscience of their bodies and public space appropriation through sports. Funds also contributed to reduce stigma thanks to a colorful and collaborative mural that reflects hope and reconciliation within a community in Ecatepec, largely known for a multihomicide in which 20 women were killed. Over 50 collectivities of mothers/defenders searching for their daughters in Ecatepec developed juridical and communicational skills for the advancement of the cases with local authorities. Comprehensive work has been done on normative legislation at federal and local level . The federal Congress of Mexico approved the reform of the General Law on Women's Access to a Life Free of Violence. UNW contributed to these results through supporting the development of 7 packages of reforms at federal level and three at local state level. The voice of more than 120 women's organizations and movements from the three Spotlight’s states were incorporated into a wide diagnosis in which 114 suggestions were identified and clustered into 7 priority areas that helped the development of legislative proposals. UNW underpinned the analysis, design, and advocacy process to reform the General Law of Administrative Responsibilities in terms of supervision, complaints and sanctions for public servants who violate the human rights of women victims of violence, unanimously approved by the Chamber of Deputies. This reform, being reviewed by the Senate of the Republic, acknowledge the demands of survivors and CSO’s, as well as important national and international sentences against Mexico. UNW also boosted the second reform to the General Law on Women's Access to a Life Free of Violence establishing comprehensive care for women in Justice Centers, mandating competent and responsible authorities to focus on providing protection, juridical and care services for women facing femicidal violence. Contributions have been made to the Federal Initiative on injuries caused by acids or corrosive substances for women victims and survivors. UNW provided technical assistance on the conceptualization of "vicarious violence", which seeks to give justice to violence against women through their daughters and sons, facing multiple situations such as separation, kidnapping and abuse. At local level, Congress of the State of Mexico and Guerrero signed a MOU within Spotlight Initiative to review and eliminate discriminatory frameworks against women and girls and enhance legal responses to prevent, address and eradicate VAWG which benefit more than 8 million girls and women in both states. The LXI Congress Legislature of the State of Mexico presented a package to modify 17 state laws to strengthen the protection of women, girls, and adolescents’ rights, regarding femicide; domestic violence; disappearance of girls and women; child femicide; sexual violence; and girls, boys and adolescents in orphanage due to femicide. Until now, five of six-packs have been analyzed, discussed, and approved by a multidisciplinary group at the State Congress, consensus has been reached to modify 37 provisions. In compliance with the National Program for Equality between Women and Men, a proposal for a femicide criminal offense model was developed, in response to the final observations of the CEDAW, in collaboration with the National Institute for Women and the National Commission to Prevent and Eradicate Violence against Women (CONAVIM). According to the concluding observations of the CEDAW to the Mexican State to strengthen the State mechanisms to systematically collect and analyze data, disaggregated by sex and age on violence against women and girls, including feminicide, the Spotlight Initiative contributed with the strengthening the National Bank of Data and Information on Cases of Violence against Women (BANAVIM for its acronym in Spanish) in the registration, use, analysis of information and its mid-term improvement. UN Women contributed to convening 7 high level dialogues with federal and local authorities . At federal level, commemorating the international Day to Eradicate Violence against women, a multi stake-holder dialogue sustained at the Mexican Senate between legislators, INMUJERES, CONAVIM, UN agencies and survivors of femicide violence for sharing testimonies on the search for justice. Two groundbreaking cases of violence against women were heard. Jesus Ochoa the brother of Digna Ochoa whose sentence has been issued by the InterAmerican Court in 2021; and Pedro Argüello, father of Pilar Argüello, the first case of femicide analyzed by the CEDAW. At local level, UN Women promoted horizontal dialogues with local Civil Society Organizations, UN representatives and local authorities for sharing key features of the local political context, and the exchange of good practices with small grants. Dialogues served as strategic and political space for CSOs collectivities of survivors, mother defenders and families’ victims, to build a political agenda and share their territorial expertise and advocacy capacities to increase their influence and participation with local governments. Promoting safe and gender responsive work and public spaces free from VAWG. 2,233 women and the entire Danone company’s community now have relevant data, two response protocols, and a toolbox with key recommendations on how to prevent and address sexual harassment against women in the workplace, as well as how to provide services and support to victims of intimate partner violence. Civil Society Organizations and the governments from the state of Coahuila and the Municipality of Iztapalapa now have a Program for Women's Access to a life free of violence based on a participatory Scoping Study that included surveys on VAWG to more than 4,600 women. More than 100 high level representatives and key partners from private sector, government institutions, and ONG's participated in the activation of UNiTE campaign , a call to action to prevent and end violence against women and girls. Audiences from social media were reached to raise awareness on the prevention and elimination of violence against women and girls: around half million views on Tik Tok through a UNiTE video in collaboration with Tik Tok's office in Mexico and the dissemination of a national widespread public radio campaign along IMER Group.
