Given the aggression suffered by a woman who lives in the La Primavera residential complex, last Friday in Culiacán, on behalf of her sentimental partner, the head of the Women’s Secretariat ( Semujeres ), Teresa Guerra Ochoa , He stated that the idea that violence occurs only in the lower social class is false.

The state official specified that although poverty is a multiplying factor of family violence , as well as misinformation to go to court, it also occurs among the upper class, but the difference is that in those cases there is greater secrecy on the part of the victims.

At the same time, she pointed out that other differences are that women of high status have greater resources to defend themselves, for example, better advice and support networks that help them.

“It is a false idea to think that (violence) occurs only in the lower class. Femicides have occurred in all strata. The difference of violence against women does not have a social rank, it does not have a social differentiation, ”she said.

Regarding this case, Teresa Guerra Ochoa reported that the State Attorney General’s Office (FGE) issued a Protection Order for the victim, after the complaint she filed against her aggressor.
