A Country At War Against Its Women

Cristina Chiquín writes in Quorum about the ongoing violence, and femicide, being waged against Guatemala’s women and girls, the links to the past, and the State’s absence in taking responsibility.

It is a disturbing piece, as you might expect, and offers no answers.

Any errors in translation are mine.

You can read the full translation above or here, A Country At War Against Its Women, and the original, in Spanish, and with moving photos by the author, here, Un país en guerra contra las mujeres.
