This day does not only imply calling attention to inequality, discrimination, femicide, and the different forms of male violence but also demanding the implementation of public policies that are still lacking to prevent and eradicate it. It is particularly relevant in a year that showed a large increase in cases of domestic violence in most countries of the world since the pandemic began.

It is also important on this day to make visible and remember that violence is not only expressed physically, but also symbolically, sexually, patrimonially, and psychologically, and is manifested in the multiple areas of life.

We are part of this battle to change as a society, we fight for a more egalitarian and equitable world and there is no social justice without the eradication of gender violence. Throughout the years we have participated in mobilizations for the expansion of rights in general, for more rights in matters of gender, the demonstrations of #NiUnaMenos, and for the legalization of abortion. We have integrated volunteers into these events because it is part of who we are and how we aim to volunteer. Reflection and participation are important because it allows us to have a closer vision of what is happening in our country.

It is always important to emphasize that we are no strangers to what is happening, that our role is active, and that we are part of the society that we seek to change.
