On October 14, students at the Faculty of Chemistry performed a virtual class stoppage to demand that university authorities not cover up assailants, punish violence against women and listen to students.
They also demanded that the case of Yasmin, a chemical engineering student who reported being raped by a student and adjunct professor at the Faculty, be addressed.
The young woman reported that she was raped inside the University City facility, and that although she made the corresponding complaint, UNAM stopped the investigations, so the defendant continued to teach.
