Ciudad Juárez, a border city located in the Mexican state of Chihuahua, is known internationally because of the homicides that have put it on the map of injustice and violence against women. Since 1993, hundreds of women, many of them young and poor maquiladora workers, have been brutally murdered or have disappeared.

The play Mujeres de Arena written by the Mexican dramaturg Humberto Robles and based on texts by Antonio Cerezo Contreras, Denise Dresser, Malú García Andrade, María Hope, Eugenia Muñoz, Marisela Ortiz and Juan Rios Cantú, is a testimony about the women in Ciudad Juárez.
