Salma Hayek joins forces with HRW to stop violence towards women

Salma Hayek recently joined the Human Rights Watch (HRW) organization in hope of asking presidential candidates in Mexico to commit to the prevention and punishment of crimes against women. Hayek, HRW, and 65 other social groups in Mexico and U.S. got together to make this call an open letter that was sent to candidates running for office in July.Hayek believes that every Mexican deserves a president that will end all these ridiculous killings against women. Non-government organizations have stated that for the last 13 years, more than 400 women have been murdered or have "disappeared" in Ciudad Juarez, in the state of Chihuahua.
"It's outrageous that Mexican women must live afraid of the killers harassing them on the streets," Hayek stated. Jose Miguel Vivanco, HWR director in the Americas, stated that "despite some efforts done by the government to investigate these brutal crimes, women are still being kidnapped, tortured, and killed in Mexico."
