This grant will enable Equis Justicia para las Mujeres to build on its previous transparency and accountability work to demand a more responsive justice system for women in Mexico. The project will make use of research, data collection, and advocacy to promote greater transparency of the justice system. By documenting the use of transparency and accountability mechanisms, Equis will share its learning, experience, and tools with other feminist Latin American organizations.

for promotion of women’s human rights in Mexico through transparency in the justice system
Founded in 2010, Justicia para las Mujeres (Equis) seeks to promote women’s human rights and gender equality through legal, advocacy, and women’s leadership strategies to achieve social justice. This grant would enable Equis to use access to information and transparency tools to give women greater access to a responsive justice system in three Mexican states and at the federal level. The project will focus on using social audits, requesting access to information, and monitoring public service delivery throughout the justice system in order to hold Mexico’s judges, public prosecutors, clerks, police officers, defense attorneys, and other justice providers accountable to the country’s international human rights and gender equality commitments.
