Violence and indigenous women

*Document Presented to CSW 57*
March 2013 - Violence and Indigenous Women summarizes a larger 
systematization document -- bearing the same title -- produced at the 
initiative of indigenous women who are members of the Continental 
Network of Indigenous Women of the Americas -- ECMIA, to be presented at 
the 57th meeting of the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women 

It presents an analysis of the context to understand and eradicate the 
different expressions of violence against indigenous, such us armed 
conflicts and militarization and the impacts of extractive industries, 
among others.

It also presents a series of recommendations addressed to international 
organizations and international cooperation agencies, States, and the 
indigenous organizations themselves to tackle this problem from its 
multiple dimensions and actors.
