Cosecha de mujeres: safari en el desierto mexicano
One homicide is bad enough, but more than 400 women slain in the northern Mexico City of Juarez and in the state of Chihuahua in one decade constitutes one of the gravest criminal episodes in the country, a true bloody harvest of women. Sexually molested, mutilated, and murdered, their bodies appeared days, weeks, or months after their disappearance in wastelands or seldom frequented areas, and the victims were mostly of working-class status—laborers and immigrants, frequently newly arrived. These murdered women did not seem to mean anything to anyone, which is the only way that the government indifference to this and the constant police inefficiencies in solving these murders could be explained. Although there are plenty of theories and abundant angles of investigation (many of these being absurd and ridiculous hypotheses, or obviously demonstrating sexism), neither the local or federal authorities have been able to or wanted to do anything.
