The State of Baja California is in First Place on the National Stage in Mexico with the highest numbers of “Feminicides” or criminal murder of women in the Republic of Mexico.
38 women were reported executed or assassinated just in the first month of January, 2021 in the State; that is the number reported by the Executive Secretary of the National System of Public Security.
The data was released last Thursday for Baja CA, a tally higher than the States of Guanajuato or Chihuahua, where the numbers were 34 and 26 respectively, making the rate the highest in the nation.
In contrast there are other states in the Republic that reported NO criminal murders of any women: Baja Ca Sur, Aguascalientes, Campeche, Tlaxcala and Yucatán.
Violence against women also is reportedly high as violence rages in the sate of Baja Ca. 148 women have reported aggressions, while 58 have made reports that had been victims of rape.
While these statistics are high they do not reflect unreported crimes or women who have disappeared.

In the monthly information report on violence against women of the Executive Secretariat of the National Public Security System (SESNSP), it indicates that Baja California is the eighth national with 21 feminicides.
The border cities Tijuana and Ciudad Juárez top the list of municipalities with the highest number of registered feminicides from January to July with 14 feminicides respectively, official figures reveal.
Those numbers were just for the first 6 months of 2020.
It is worth mentioning that Mexicali and Ensenada occupy a place in the list of the first 100 municipalities with alleged crimes of feminicide, they are ranked 27 and 26, respectively, both municipalities with three cases of feminicide.
