  • 49% have suffered from emotional violence.
  • 29% have suffered from emotional-patrimonial violence or discrimination.

Of the women who were assaulted in some form, 78.6 percent of them have not sought help or reported their attacks to authorities. Guaymas and the surrounding communities have NO women’s shelter, therefore they cannot escape the abuser.
