The Invisible Genocide of Women

The Invisible Genocide of Women. by (Ofelia&Zurita) from Ofelia de Pablo & Javier Zurita on Vimeo.

“More than 100,000 women were raped in the 36 years of the Guatemalan genocide in which at least 200,000 people died.

In this video, photojournalists Ofelia de Pablo and Javier Zurita interview survivors and document the ongoing forensic and legal investigation that has just indicted former Guatemalan President Efraín Ríos Montt.”

I just came across this really powerful short film which resonates strongly with the current trial against Ríos Montt.

Xeni Jardin featured it on Boing Boing for the Women Under Siege website.
