They have a name: the cartography of feminicidios in Ciudad Juarez

Yesterday a friend sent me a link to an article about feminicidios. An interactive map that had patiently been created aggregating data from several sources:the archives of the

Fiscalía Especializada en la Investigación de Asesinatos de Mujeres de la Subprocuraduría de Justicia Zona Norte, the Comisión Nacional de los Derechos Humanos y de organizaciones no gubernamentales.

The team is made by  Diana Washington, Sergio González Rodríguez, Rohry Benítez, Adriana Candia, Patricia Cabrera y Julia Monárrez, and the data gathering has used news from local newspapers, non governmental organisations and, overall, some crucial blogs. The victims have been given a name; their stories have been told and they have finally emerged.

despite a general sense of happiness, there also emerges a profound disappointment at the lack of interest that one of our project, namely giving the names to such victims, has met these years.

However, we don t want to spoil such a good beginning (hoping this project will expand and perhaps collaboration emerge). The link is below.
