It's been 17 years since Mexico took a landmark step with the General Law of Women's Access to a Life Free of Violence (LGAMVLV). But let's hold the confetti for now. While the law itself deserves a standing ovation, the reality on the ground paints a different picture.
Imagine this: 70% of Mexican women have faced violence in their lifetime. That's like walking down the street and having 7 out of 10 women you pass tell you they've been harassed, abused, or worse. It's a sobering statistic, and one that exposes the gap between legal progress and lived experience.
