Mexico City (dpa) - Fifteen police officers and four civilians were injured during International Women’s Day demonstrations in Mexico City, the Ministry of Public Security said, as thousands of women protested against gender violence across the country.  


Feminist groups took to the streets of Mexico on Monday to demand a stop to murders of and abuses against women, in a country where about 10 women are murdered every day. 

 
More than 3,700 women were murdered in Mexico last year   Protesters carried photos of murdered women and posters with phrases such as “Mexico murderer of women” and “They have not murdered me, but I live in fear.”   In Mexico City, demonstrators marched to the National Palace, the seat of the federal executive, which had previously been fenced off, as were some 30 historical monuments around the capital.
