[Dead Women of Juarez]

a-las-muertas-de-juarez.jpg

From 1993 until the year 2002 women living in Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, are afraid to leave their homes, their work, no matter the hour, and is already more than 200 women murdered, that’s what the media information been disseminated to the public, but I think that this version is not very far from reality. But they can not stay at home all day, having to go out to work, economic livelihood of every day.

Violence, aggression, or as you called, remains on the margins of development of humanity not in vain says that survives and evolves the most suitable, and that is not only suitable for in skill, but strength; focuses more how strong the aggressor allows the survival of which is weaker than him. The issue of aggression, it had always been referred to in the history of society, men have represented the role of the fort and the weak has been awarded to women.

Mexican society is a society characterized as male chauvinist [machista], besides that it shows the lifestyle of the population, where the figure of the man plays a very important role to such an extent to represent the strength of the family. That many Mexicans call ” what they will say?”, it has reached extreme situations where women endure abuse, in order to give the impression to neighbors, friends and relatives that her marriage is stable. It is noteworthy that the same applies to domestic partners boyfriends and even in extreme cases among friends.

While Mexican society and in all societies, violence has become an acceptable way of life in many cases, this is due to the steadfastness with which presents mostly domestic violence. Moreover, the violence with a greater degree of cruelty, to such an extent to cause death, for the moment is very rejected by society; this issue is that we will deal with this reflection.

The central theme for women murdered in Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua is a huge problem.

Now hollowed filmed a Movie with Jennifer Lopez about the topic, but is just a little bit about the real life.
