November 25 marked the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women and in Puerto Vallarta the names of women who have been victims of femicide were restored on the cross installed in their memory in the Women's Park.

The leader of the Women's Collective of Puerto Vallarta, Emma Noriega, pointed out that this year, the Commission for Attention to Victims of Jalisco is working to carry out the first reparation of damage to a family indirect victim of femicide.

Since 2014 there have been 81 women who have died in violent deaths in Puerto Vallarta and that so far very few cases have had justice.

On Saturday afternoon, from the Women's Park, a roll call of each one of these women and also of those who have not been identified so far, as their date of death also hangs on a plaque with their ribbon from the monument of the pink cross.

As is traditional every year, there was also a march, both collectives and families who are indirect victims of violence, as well as citizens in general, to Los Arcos del Malecón.
