18 women murdered in April

Every month El Diario does this kind of summary.  I have used these
summaries for several years to compile the information on the homicides of
women going back to 1993.
Note This:
According to the newspaper archive, in January there were 12 homicides, 10
in February, 15 in March and 18 in April, according to the official
statistics provided by the Fiscalia.
Juarez is the only municipality that reports this statistic (aggravated
homicides against women) at the national level.
De acuerdo al archivo periodístico, en enero fueron cometidos 12
homicidios, 10 en febrero, 15 en marzo y 18 en abril, de acuerdo a los
datos oficiales aportados por esta Fiscalía,
Juárez es el único municipio que registra esta cifra a nivel nacional.
A google translation is posted below as well as a small chart comparing the
number of women victims (1,232) to the total homicide victims (14,039)
since 1993.

The total number of women victims since this count began in 1993 is 1,232
according to the article. molly
