Deputies legislate to break down barriers that violate women’s rights: Gutiérrez Luna


The Chamber of Deputies endorses the commitment to legislate, among other things, to break down the barriers that violate the rights and freedoms of women, said Sergio Gutierrez Lunapresident of the Board of Directors of this body of the Legislative Power.

In the framework of International Women’s Day, which is commemorated on March 8 of each year, highlighted that in order to achieve this objective, the deputies have approved reforms to different legal systems to favor the living conditions of women.

He pointed out that asserting their human, participation, economic, political-electoral rights in law, as well as contributing to a life free of violence, should be the axis of the agendas of the various parliamentary factions, so it is necessary to move forward in the areas of equity, inclusion and full enjoyment of guarantees.

In this sense, he stressed, the Chamber of Deputies has recently promoted legal reforms to establish public policies that promote empowerment, as well as social, economic and individual development, with the aim of closing inequality gaps and preventing, addressing, punishing and eradicate violence against women.

In parallel, he indicated, the Gender Equality Commission endorsed various opinions last Friday that it is estimated will be released in the ordinary session next Tuesday, March 8. Among the topics that stand out are: helping to eradicate femicide, timely assistance to women victims of violence, gender perspective, and education with an equality approach.

In addition, that day the Solemn Session will be held to commemorate International Women’s Day, in which it is expected that the interventions and leadership will be in charge of legislators from the various benches.

The commemoration, she commented, highlights the events that emerged in the 19th century, when women were the architects of a struggle for their rights and that today is more valid than ever.

Gutiérrez Luna added that as part of the actions in favor of women, in the LXV Legislature, the Plural Group for Substantive Equality, which is made up of deputies from various parliamentary fractions, has built an ambitious agenda in this area.

In this regard, he acknowledged that this group presented its calendar of activities for March, among which are: master conferences, book presentations, exhibitions and forums around International Women’s Day.
