On the other hand, the report’s conclusions stated that «47.9 women reported being victims of violence and/or discrimination based on their gender. An alarming fact considering the impact it has on the violation of their rights, affecting their physical, financial autonomy with repercussions on their daily life and social circle in which it develops».
Among the points discussed in the Amuch survey, it is mentioned that 55.6% of women agree that the social outburst through the country has helped to make the demands for equity more publicized.
