The cause that has generated violence in Tlaxcala, as in the entire country, is inequality, she said.

“It is urgent that the three levels of government, the powers of the State and society join forces, only in this way will we be able to stop in depth this constant violation of human rights against women and girls,” he said this Wednesday.

He warned that the entity is violating the rights of women to health, work, education, access to justice, and a life free of violence.
