Migrant Women and Girls from the Northern Triangle and their Journey Through Mexico: A Downward Spiral of Hazards


This paper provides an overview of the context faced by women and girls in each specific Northern Triangle of Central America country (Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador). More specifically, it analyses the reasons behind women and girls’ decisions to leave their countries of origin and the multiple dangers they face during their migratory route through Mexico. It considers the effects of the tightening of U.S. migration policies and the prolongation of the Migrant Protection Protocols also known as the “Remain in Mexico”, that took place under the Trump administration. The paper examines the role of gender in determining the needs of migrant women and girls, but also the hazards they face.
