Nationwide marches against the murder of women
Santo Domingo. – On the eve of the Day of Non-violence Against Women, every November 25, Dominican Republic’s fight against the murders of women has lost footing, with hundreds of complaints of domestic and gender violence lodged daily in prosecutors’ offices.
The situation is so alarming that according to the latest nationwide statistics every 36 hours a woman is killed by her spouse or ex spouse, action defined as intimate feminicide.
Yesterday several simultaneous marches were held in the capital and other populations of the country, in rebuke of those crimes.
