The vulnerabilities of indigenous women and girls are often invisible within the category of women. From a sociological perspective, the nine chapters of this book examine the gender violence suffered by indigenous women in public, private and institutional spaces. In private spaces, intimate partner violence, family violence, and sexual abuse are examined, while in public and institutional spaces, the work of health services, birth control, and spaces for political participation and agrarian representation are addressed. as scenarios of discrimination and gender violence. In addition, the homicides of women in indigenous municipalities and regions and the mechanisms of the Gender Violence Alert are analyzed. Finally, the availability of information on this violence in the different states of the Republic is studied, as well as its cultural relevance. An intersectional perspective underlies the work that allows us to notice the multiple socio-structural determinations that interact, accumulate and generate disadvantages among indigenous women and girls. Only by recognizing the ethnic and cultural diversity of Mexico, and incorporating it into the work of governments and academia, can we ensure that indigenous women and girls are made visible so that they can live a life free of violence.
