Hundreds of women have taken to the streets of Mexico City to protest the grisly murder and mutilation of a young woman, spray painting “we won’t be silenced” on the capital’s National Palace and facing off with riot police.

The killing last weekend of Ingrid Escamilla, of Mexico City, comes as Mexico is grappling with a rise in gender-related attacks. Her boyfriend, who was been arrested, purportedly confessed to killing the 25-year-old with a knife, mutilating her body and flushing part of her corpse into the sewer. But the outrage over the death has grown after some local media published photos of Escamilla’s skinned corpse, apparently leaked by police officers.

The article goes on to state the following:

REPORT: Ex-US Ambassador’s daughter adopted from Honduras charged with stabbing man to death

“It enrages us how Ingrid was killed, and how the media put her body on display,” the protesters said in a statement read aloud Friday during the demonstrations.

“We are not mad, we are furious,” the statement reads.

Reporter Chantal Flores shared videos on Twitter of the protests.

“Feminists in northern Mexico protest the killing of 25-year-old Ingrid Escamilla in Mexico City and the publication of graphic photos of her murder in newspapers. #MexicoFeminicida,” she tweeted.

“Protesters observe a minute of silence in honor of Isabel Cabanillas, feminist activist killed in Cd. Juárez on January 19. #stopfemicides.”

Flores added, “Nuevo León is one of the main states with the highest number of femicides in the country. Yet the state’s conservative culture still considers violence against women a “private matter.””

“The feminist march ends with protesters blocking one of the main avenues in downtown Monterrey. They demanded justice and called on the Mexican government to stop the violence.”

Journalist Daniel Alvarenga shared a video, tweeting, “Feminists burned a van during the protest in front of the La Prensa newspaper. They demand a public apology from the director for the publication for publishing the photographs of Ingrid Escamilla’s skinned body. Video: Ixtlixóchitl López”
