Even though Argentina has ratified most major international and regional human rights treaties, violence against women and girls continues to be a serious and persistent problem. Argentina committed to federalize Micaela Law No. 27499, named after a victim of femicide. The law requires training on gender and violence against women for public servants in all levels of the executive, legislative, and judicial branches. Currently, the Micaela Law applies mostly to national government bodies. The commitment aims to ensure the provision’s adoption and implementation by all provincial governments, as well as share information from provincial agencies so citizens can monitor the law’s implementation.
