Mujeres de Arena: Testimony of Women from Ciudad Juarez - USA

Play and Discussion

Since 1993, more than 4,000 women - workers and students - have disappeared in Ciudad Juarez, Chihuaha - a city in Northern Mexico just a few miles south of El Paso, TX. According to Amnesty International, 327 of them have been found tortured, raped, mutilated and murdered, after having been kidnapped in the center of the city at the end of their workday in the maquilas [assembly plants in the US border region], or leaving their computing academies, their bodies eventually abandoned on vacant land.
Mujeres de Arena: Testimonios de Mujeres en Ciudad Juárez is a dramatic showcase of four femicide (genocide against women) victims' testimonials and poetry by various authors.

On March 12th at 7:00pm and March 13th at 2:00pm, CFAC will host the performance and subsequent discussion at the PRPAC Black Box Theater, 805 E. Genesee Street. Call or e-mail CFAC for further details.
