In Juarez a femicide of catasthropic proportion is taking place,
Approximately 350 young, brown and poor women have been killed since 1993.
Some prevalent responses to the killing of working class young brown women are:
treating the femicide as a judicial problem; experiencing a moral panic and blaming
women for the social problems that the city is having due to their lack of response to
their “natural” domestic obligations; ascribing personal responsibility of women to take
care of themselves. In this way the States dissociates of the responsibilities it has to
provide the required infrastructure to have a safe life; restricting public spaces so that
the division between private and public space is accentuated and men gain dominance
of the streets and public spaces, therefore, women are remain invisible and without
power; construction of women as “deviant” particularly working-class, young brown
women; lack of solidarity among middle-class women regarding the genocide of working-
class brown women. and finally supporting terrorism against women who participate in
Non-governmental organizations
Women in Cd. Juarez, have participated in the labor force intensely since the
insertion of transnational maquiladoras in the border region. However, women’s
participation in the economy has not been translated into a revalorization of their
contribution and therefore, a restructuring of domestic and childcare work. On the
contrary, in order to keep the cost of labor low, there has been a feminization of labor,
and consequently a feminization of poverty. The neoliberal State has contributed to Cd.
Juarez growing urban marginality where development is financed where the
maquiladoras are whereas there has been a continuous urban neglect where most
people live.
