Hermosillo Women's Day march includes nonbinary and trans people in calls for justice

Across Mexico, marches on International Women's Day have become an annual tradition, demanding an end to the crisis of killings and disappearances of women and girls in the country. This year, the Hermosillo march also focused on inclusivity within feminist movements.

“¡Ni cis, ni trans, ni una muerta mas!"

Gathered in front of the state judiciary, thousands of women chant, “Not cis, not trans, not one more death.”

They joined women across Mexico, Latin America and around the world in demonstrations on International Women's Day, calling for an end to gender violence, repressive abortion laws and inequality in all its forms.

And this year, they’re also calling for unity and inclusion, says Toto Respeto with Pan y Rosas, one of eight collectives that organized this year’s march.

In contrast to previous years, the groups explicitly invited nonbinary and trans people to participate in the protest on March 8, calling for justice and an end to violence in a country where, on average, 10 women are killed every day.
