For these reasons and many others, a group of women in Mexico organized a state-wide day of action against sexual violence.

Nos Queremos Vivas, “we want to stay alive,” set off a march through the State of Mexico on April 24. Several women’s rights groups signed on to the campaign, many via images shared on social media with the hashtag #24A or #NosQueremosVivas.
