The Center for Women’s Studies-Honduras (CEMH), the Center for Women’s Rights, the Women’s Network of Colonia Ramón Amaya Amador, the Women’s Network of Manzanal, the Women’s Network of the Red Cross Col were present on February 22 before Congress in order to lobby and monitor that the proposal for a typification of femicide coordinated with the Ministry of Human Rights and Justice is in line with the work performed for more than ten years by feminist organizations for the construction of an offense that punishes men who kill women because they are women.

The typification of femicide means to improve the registration systems of the judiciary, as well as to review and elaborate necessary, relevant and timely legislation for the recognition and punishment of other forms of violence against women.
