Item description for Cosecha de mujeres: Safari en el desierto mexicano (El Dedo En La Llaga) (Spanish Edition) by Diana Washington Valdez & Diana Washington...

Un solo homicidio debiera ser indignante por si mismo, pero los mas de cuatrocientos asesinatos de mujeres en Ciudad Juarez y en el estado de Chihuahua en una decada conforman uno de los mas graves episodios criminales del pais, una verdadera cosecha sangrienta de mujeres. Agredidas sexualmente, mutiladas y asesinadas, sus cadaveres aparecen dias, semanas o meses despues de su desaparicion en terrenos baldios o lugares poco frecuentados, y las victimas son en su mayoria de extraccion social baja, trabajadoras, inmigrantes y, con frecuencia, recien llegadas. Las mujeres asesinadas parecen no importarle a nadie, solo asi se explica la indiferencia gubernamental y la constante ineficiencia policiaca para esclarecer estos crimenes. Aunque las teorias y las lineas de investigacion abundan (muchas de ellas con hipotesis absurdas, ridiculas y mostrando un evidente sexismo), ni las autoridades locales ni las federales han podido o querido hacer nada. One of the most serious series of criminal incidents in the history of Mexico is the murder of more than four hundred women in Ciudad Juarez over the last decade: a truly bloody harvest of women. The victims are workers, immigrants, usually newcomers with low social and economic conditions. They're sexually assaulted, mutilated, and murdered. Their bodies turn up days, weeks, or even months after reported missing. It seems that nobody cares about them. This would explain the government's indifference and the police's inefficiency in solving the crimes. Despite the fact that there are many theories and ongoing investigations (most of them with ridiculous hypotheses, filled with sexist ideas), neither the local nor the federal authorities have been able, or have wanted, to do anything about the murders.
