Description
Paulina García-Del Moral, Center for Research on Gender and Women Visiting Scholar

I argue, on the one hand, that feminicidio could be used to frame the murders of Indigenous women and girls as racialized gendered violence rooted in ongoing colonial relations. Yet, on the other hand, I argue that the success of feminicidio as a frame in the Mexican context, as well as its potential obstacles to travel to Canada is partly embedded in the “racial grammar” of international law.
