Femicide and the Forgotten Women of Juarez

For nearly thirty years, women in the Mexican border city of Juarez have been disappearing, many of them turning up dead in mass graves. We don’t know who the killers are. Very few people have been charged, and fewer convicted. My guests today have been dedicated to finding out why. Oz Woloshyn and Monica Oritz Uribe, host the amazing podcast Forgotten: Women of Juarez, the final episode of which is now available.  It’s both a powerful true crime story and an important human rights story that you won’t want to miss.
