This panel will bring together women from feminist organizations and activist/research initiatives in Mexico and the United States who have taken part in a multiplicity of organized responses to violence inflicted upon women (from harassment and sexual violence to forced disappearance and femicide). They will address how any attempt to tackle the structural conditions of these phenomena demands putting into  question some of the dominant conceptual, spatial, and political geographies through which these manifestations of violence are usually understood and tackled. They will speak about the tension between grass-roots initiatives and demands emerging from the feminist  movement, and the appeal to instituted powers, from governments to international organizations.
