Violence Against Women: A Crime Against Mexico

A reponse to the Mexican government's recent "apology" for failing to solve the murders of woman in Ciudad Juarez "Last week the Mexican government publicly apologized for not preventing the 2001 murders of three women in Ciudad Juárez, and for botching the subsequent investigations. The mea culpa strikes me as very narrow, given that hundreds of women have been murdered in and around that desolate border city since 1993.
