We are working on a diagnosis in the Mayan communities to determine the situation of violence in which women live in rural communities, in addition to promoting that the municipal and Ejidal authorities listen to them and respect them, not only for their work at home but because they are human beings; said the coordinator of the Alternative Center for Integral Indigenous Development (CADIN), María Liria Fabiola May Canul.

“We are women who fight for our community, we deserve to be respected and not be violated,” she reiterated and pointed out that everyone should know the importance of women in the communities, as she assured that, although they are not professionals and some even do not know how to read or writing, does not mean that they are less or that they should be treated as inferior because what they do for their families is very important.

Likewise, he emphasized that, although they still have a long way to go to achieve full justice, he said, the incidence of violence in several communities has already decreased by at least 50 percent. However, he stated that they will continue working to ensure their wellbeing.

“We work to highlight the importance of women in the communities because what we have as indigenous women is that we fight for our community and many times it is not recognized, they do not value what we do for the family, home education, protecting Those of us who want to, even contributing to the home economy, what we do with the children, we want to show what we are capable of,” she continued.

She declared that, when she has questioned them about what is done at Cadin, or they try to minimize it with comments, they reflect on how the lives of many women have changed and they do not let their spirits falter. 

“Many times we have been judged for the work we do and the progress we have made in the communities has been underestimated, however, we have helped many women who have suffered a situation of violence, and our greatest reward is that they have moved forward and continued with its mission”, underlined May Canul.

“We want everyone to value ​​and believe in the women of our communities because many times they suffer from violence, and when they report the situation before the corresponding authorities, they are ignored because they are not considered important by the local authorities, and they don’t believe them. But believe it or not, we have made a lot of progress because at least the commissioners and authorities in several municipalities already believe in them, but we have to make it happen everywhere around the state,” May Canul concluded.
