The Women of Ciudad Juarez

Woman of Juarez are hardly ever acknowledge in Mexico and in the United States. No one takes the time to acknowledge their work, when they are the women who work, in order to satisfy the needs of people in the United States. There have been several factors that have served as a contribution to the violence occurring against the woman in Ciudad Juarez. Some blame the drug cartels, some blame the military, some blame the economy, some blame serial killers, but nobody truly understands the violence. The question to these murders has been raised by several individuals, and it is to argue that it is the fault of globalization and industrialization. The contribution of the two nations and its ideas of Globalization have allowed the incidents of disappearances of more women in Ciudad Juarez. Therefore the murders of Ciudad Juarez are not causality, but an issue involving the government both of the United States and Mexico. For decades it has been noted that women are treated unequally and in an unjust matter, but today’s incidents in Juarez have escalated to a higher level of injustice. Bowden says “The violence is increasing day by day, and the murderers, over and over again, turn out to be members of the Mexican Army, who are clearly working with the cartels. When is it not the army carrying out murder, it is gangs, with army and even police support” (Bowden). It is clearly stated that in one way or the other theirs a member of society involve in the crimes, but indeed it is to blame the Mexican government, since they have becomes accomplices of the crime. It could be a possibility that they can stop it and solve the problem, but due to the corruption that exist they have join the violent movement. Furthermore, research studies, such as Rafael Luevano’s say that, “In Northern Mexico, more than 250 women have disappeared and at least 500 women have been killed. Out of all the women killed, the age range that is targeted is between the ages of ten and thirty. Women are kidnapped, tortured, raped, and murdered. In many cases, their bodies are mutilated or dumped in the desert slums on Juarez's outskirts” (Luevano 68). Additional research has stated that “Beginning 2006, violence in Juarez has skyrocketed. Over 2500 people were murdered in 2008” (Bowden). Statistics presented by Amnesty International have shown that, “as of 2006 more than 400 bodies have been recovered, with hundreds still missing” (Rodriguez). “The number of missing women given in the November 2008 National Human Rights Commission report was 4,587” (Acosta 1). The cause for the violence against woman has not yet been determined but there is evidence showing that women working in factories run a higher risk of been attacked. According to Julia Fragoso, and her studies on Femicide, “The young women, who show a greater risk and vulnerability to be attacked, are those who work in the maquiladora industry” (Fragoso). This means that a high percentage of the woman who work in these industries run a risk of never seen their families again. The question is how are they at risk? And the answer is, maquiladoras operate until late hours, therefore women leave work late. Julia Says, “In addition to being women, they are migrants; they walk for long distances and at late hours of the night” (Fragoso). They have no other option than to work in these places, and risk their lives, since the maquiladora is the only source of income. In the book, The Daughters of Juarez, by Teresa Rodriguez, women share their stories and say, “Getting a job on one of the hundreds of assembly lines meant a chance at a better life for the impoverished and often untrained laborers flooding into the Juárez area from throughout the region. Juárez was one of the few places in Mexico that was experiencing a growth in the job market” (Rodriguez). With this in mind, it is possible to appreciate and understand the incentives these women possess to migrate to Ciudad Juarez. Though they dream of succeed they end up been victims of the violent attacks. The Problem though, is not who is killing, but the incentives and causes of the deaths. “When one speaks of the killing of women, the lives and actions of the victims are described, but not those of the killers. The violence cannot be understood without taking into account the dominant class behind the organization protecting its interests and privileges through a political system permeated in violence” (Fragoso). This means that those who possess the power are behind this problem. Though it is not a precise response to the killings, it is useful to understand how the dominant class whether in Mexico or the United states, continues to subordinate the lower class. Additionally, as a consequence of legislations that have been passed, the problem of homicide against Woman of Ciudad Juarez has increased to a higher level. Arguably, since the introduction and passage of North America Fee Trade Agreement (NAFTA), more women have continued to disappear. Arguably, the passage of NAFTA pushed the problem to a new level, since NAFTA has allowed free trade among the United States, Mexico and Canada. According to Rafael Luevano and his research study, “At its simplest, this agreement means that U.S. companies can produce goods south of their border, taking advantage of minimal taxes and abundant cheap labor” (Luevano 71). It is significant to understand the contribution of NAFTA and its call for industrializing in Mexico, because its settlement, serves as a contribution to enacting the assembly plants, “maquiladoras” in Juarez for cheap labor. According to Rafael Luevano, “There has been approximately three hundred foreign owned factories established in Juarez at this time, each employing thousands of workers” (Luevano 71). Arguably, it means that more and more factories are beginning to open, calling for the migration of more women in Juarez. As a cause of this, more women run the risk of never seen their families again, since a high percentage of them have to work the night shifts. With the passage of NAFTA, it is possible to argue that the United States has highly benefited from it, more than the other two nations. How? Well the United States is paying this women a low wage, to work, and produce, while they obtain and sale the products for higher prices in the United States. It is more beneficial for them to employ worker in Mexico, since cheap labor leaves them, higher profits. Rafael Luevano says, “NAFTA has been described as a "win-win" agreement. United States corporations benefit handsomely and the U.S. population gets to enjoy everything from zippy computers to sexy low-rise jeans priced lower than those made in the U.S.A.” (Luevano 71). In addition to the benefits it produces, the government of the United States has recognized the profitable effect of NAFTA. According to the Office of the United States Trade Representative, “NAFTA created the world's largest free trade area, which now links 450 million people producing $17 trillion worth of goods and services” (NAFTA). It is important to understand the contribution the United States has had in the violence against women in Juarez. It is not visible or easy to understand, but once the situation is deeply study, it’s perceptible to see the connection between the attempts to industrialize in Mexico, and seek for profits, while exploiting and been accomplices of the violence against the Women of Juarez. One must not go on without realizing that the ideologies of industries and free trade have had a major impact in the history of homicide against women in Mexico. Stop to think that it could be your daughter, or sister who is at risk, with such legislations, that make Femicide acceptable in society. Today is in Mexico, tomorrow it might be here.

Feminicide, Gender Violence Against Women

...LAS Disposables Ciudad Juárez March 13, 2015
 Femicide and Structural Violence against Women in By: Craig Serpa LAS DISPOSABLES PAGE 1 ! Introduction Much research has been produced attempting to describe and subvert femicide in Ciudad Juárez, but perhaps the most accurate description of the gendered violence can be found in an American political cartoon. A maquiladora, or Mexican border assembly/ processing plant, stands alone among rolling hills littered with gravestones in the shape of the symbol of Venus. The graves extend to the horizon line in all directions, seemingly endless. From the viewer’s position in the lower right corner of the cartoon they can discern details on the nearest grave: the top arch of the hand mirror reads “femicide”; it’s handle, “over 370 killed and counting”; a small altar of flowers, bread, and a prayer candle rest at its base. Caricatures of a police officer, politician, Uncle Sam, and cartel boss shift nervously in front of a mugshot height chart. They look at the viewer and the sky but never at the graves, symbolically refusing to acknowledge their role in the women’s murders. The intricate detail given to the usual suspects and graves overshadows the women themselves. The factory workers are only suggested by a female skeleton, her gender marked with long curly hair, hangs out of the window of a bus driving to the factory. She glances over her shoulder and makes uncomfortable eye contact with the viewer, her gaze asking......

Mexican Drug Cartel

...Mexican Drug Cartels Abstract Mexico has long been used as a transshipment point for narcotics and contraband between Latin America and United States markets. Over time, various organizations, also known as “Cartels” have become involved in the distribution, as well as transportation, of illegal drugs and firearms. The fight for power between these known cartels has led to many arrests and deaths of cartel leaders as well as their rivals. While many factors have contributed to the escalating violence, security analysts in Mexico City trace the rising scourge to the longtime implicit arrangement between narcotics traffickers and governments controlled by the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI), which lost its grip on political power in the late 1980s. There was a decrease in the fighting during the late 1990s but the violence steadily worsened after the 2000s. Origin Birth of all Mexican drug cartels is traced to former Mexican Judicial Federal Police agent Miguel Angel Felix Gallardo, also known as “The Godfather”. He founded the Guadalajara Cartel in 1980. He started off by smuggling marijuana and opium into the United States and was the first Mexican drug chief to link up with Colombia’s cocaine cartels, which were run by Pablo Escobar. At the time Felix Gallardo was considered the lord of all Mexican drug smugglers and was in charge of all operations; there was just him, his people, and the politicians who sold him protection. In 1985 the......

San Pedro Sula

...San Pedro Sula (Spanish pronunciation: [sam ˈpeðɾo sula]) is a city in Honduras. The city is located in the northwest corner of the country, in the Valle de Sula (Sula Valley), about 60 kilometres (37 mi) south of Puerto Cortés on the Caribbean Sea. With an estimated population of 873,824 people in the main municipality, and 1,245,598 in its metro area (2010), it is the second largest city, after the capital Tegucigalpa. It is the capital of the Cortés Department. As of 2013 San Pedro Sula has the highest murder rate on Earth. Cathedral San Pedro Sula was founded on 27 June 1536, by Pedro de Alvarado under the name Villa de San Pedro de Puerto Caballos, close to the town of Choloma. There were around 18 towns populated by indigenous people in the Sula valley at the time. Early descriptions of the landscape indicate abundant swampland and dense tropical forests, with little land good for agriculture or cattle raising. The city's name became San Pedro Sula in the 18th century, after several changes. The "Sula" part of its name comes from the Minas de Sula, gold mines located to the west of the village of Naco. Panoramic view of Downtown San Pedro Sula For the first few years of its history, San Pedro was the colonial mint, where gold, found to the west in the Naco, Sula, and Quimistán valleys, had to be brought to smelt, and where the Spanish Crown collected a fifth of the value of the gold. The mint was moved toGracias, and ultimately to Comayagua in the......

Genocide in Mexico

...Blake Hardnett Mrs. Douglass 18 January 2010 Genocide in Mexico This paper explores incidents of genocide that occurred in Mexico from 1945 to 2001. Research focuses on four main episodes of genocide: the October 2, 1968 massacre in Tlatelolco; the Corpus Christi massacre on June 10, 1971; and Mexico’s Dirty War that occurred from the early 1970’s through the 1980’s; and the genocide of women that has been occurring since the Dirty War. Research indicates that the first three episodes of genocide were the responsibility of corrupt government leaders and the army and police that carried out the genocide under government orders (Krauze 725-752). Luis Echeverria, a leading figure in the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) during the 1960’s and Mexico’s president from 1970 to 1976, was charged with genocide related to these events in 2004. However, the charges were dropped due to a judge ruling that the events took place too long ago (BBC 1). The fourth episode of genocide against women is due to the drug cartels and the corrupt government officials that are involved in crime in Mexico (Ramirez 1-2). From 1945 to 1964, Mexico was booming and prosperous because the Second World War had just ended and modernization and industrialization were priorities for the three Mexican presidents during those years. The presidents in office from 1946 until 1964 were Miguel Aleman, Adolfo Ruiz Cortines and Adolfo Lopez Mateos. During this time, Mexico had good relations......

To begin with, women are excellent caretakers, and having them at home to raise children and tend to their husbands bolsters everyone around them..." "I believe that women don't solely belong in the home, because they are able to contribute a great deal to society that they wouldn't have the ability to do at home. Women politicians, doctors, etc are a large part of what makes our society great because..." "A woman's place is in the home." This is a very old saying, and has today I think come to mean something very specific. When people use this expression today, it is usually in ridicule of someone else, and suggesting that they have very old-fashioned and reprehensible beliefs. The notion is that people who actually believe that the saying is true, believe that all women should be forced to stay in their homes, and not go out to work, or have careers, and that they should busy and content themselves with tidying up and decorating the home, to make it a pleasant place to be for their husbands who will appreciate this. On top of this, they must do the cooking and washing. If this is what the saying means, then I disagree with it. The saying refers to a very large and complicated topic: that of people's roles in society, and if I were forced to state that I either agreed or disagreed with the statement, then whichever answer I gave would be a simplification so great that it would be untrue.......

Drug War in Mexico

...Mexico’s Drug War Drug trafficking has become an increasingly growing problem in the world today. Illegal drug trade is a worldwide black market consisting of production, distribution, packaging, and sale of illegal substances. Although today’s "War on Drugs" is a modern phenomenon, drug problems have been a common problem throughout history. The market for illegal drugs is massive, when we consider the estimated global drug trade value is worth $321 billion (Vulliamy). The most drug trafficking happens on the border between Mexico and the United States. Former Mexican President Felipe Calderon said, “Our neighbor is the largest consumer of drugs in the world. And everybody wants to sell him drugs through our door and our window” (Catholic Online). Mexico is the main foreign supplier of marijuana and a major supplier of methamphetamine to the United States. Mexico is responsible for 90% of drugs that comes from the southern border of the United States. Mexico has been a producer and distributer of illegal drugs for generations; the country now finds itself in a battle with powerful and well-financed drug cartels. The corruption in the Mexico, the trafficking of weapons and the violence has made it possible for cartels to keep operating. Since 2006, when president Calderon declared the war on drug cartels, violence in Mexico has increased dramatically. The country has certainly seen a big rise in drug violence, with cartels fighting for control of major shipment routes.......

Drug Across the Border

...DRUGS ACROSS BORDERS 1 Drug Trafficking At The US/Mexican Border Adrian Bryant ENG 122 Terri Hennessey August 29, 2011 DRUGS ACROSS BORDERS 2 Sections along the border between the United States and Mexico have become so dangerous, due to drug trafficking, that both governments appear to be helpless in their cause to defend themselves against the movement of drugs and the violence that this movement has caused. Mexico's President Felipe Calderon's actions are being challenged by its citizens. In May of 2011 the U.S. State Department advised U.S. travelers to steer clear of 10 Mexican states, including most of the border region and popular vacation sites such as Acapulco and Monterrey (Hsu, 2011). It is the opinion of the researcher that drug trafficking has become so intertwined into drug cartel related issues, that the U.S. and the Mexican government have completely loss the ability to control the flow of drugs or contain the violence's associated with drug trafficking. Both governments appear to be helpless in their plight to defeat the drug cartels leaders or their mission to sell and transport drugs into the United States.

Logic Fallacies

...Master List of Logical Fallacies  Fallacies are fake or deceptive arguments, arguments that prove nothing. Fallacies often seem superficially sound, and far too often have immense persuasive power, even after being clearly exposed as false. Fallacies are not always deliberate, but a good scholar’s purpose is always to identify and unmask fallacies in arguments.                      Ad Hominem Argument: Also, "personal attack," "poisoning the well." The fallacy of attempting to refute an argument by attacking the opposition’s personal character or reputation, using a corrupted negative argument from ethos. E.g., "He's so evil that you can't believe anything he says." See also Guilt by Association. Also applies to cases where potential opposing arguments are brushed aside without comment or consideration, as simply not worth arguing about.   Appeal to Closure. The contemporary fallacy that an argument, standpoint, action or conclusion must be accepted, no matter how questionable, or else the point will remain unsettled and those affected will be denied "closure." This refuses to recognize the truth that some points will indeed remain unsettled, perhaps forever. (E.g., "Society would be protected, crime would be deterred and justice served if we sentence you to life without parole, but we need to execute you in order to provide some sense of closure.") (See also "Argument from Ignorance," "Argument from Consequences.")  Appeal to Heaven: (also Deus Vult, Gott...

El Chapo was born into a poor rural family and lived six hours away from the closest city. Educated only to the 3rd grade and began selling marijuana with his father at a young age. At 15 he started selling it on his own and quickly made enough money to support his entire family. He built his mother a sprawling home in their rural hometown. She's a devout Catholic and "the only one who can change one of his decisions with a word."   In 1993 he was arrested in Guatemala, but eight years later escaped from the maximum security prison in the Mexican state of Jalisco. In November 1995, he managed to win a transfer to the Puente Grande prison, near Guadalajara, where he remained as he faced trial for 10 different charges, including drug-trafficking and homicide. Then, on January 19, 2001, Guzmán managed to escape -- according to the Mexican government’s official record, by hiding in a dirty-laundry cart which guards eventually led to the gate of the penitentiary.  But an ex-accomplice, Noé “El Gato” Hernández, has told journalists that El Chapo’s escape wasn’t nearly as daring as the Mexican Justice Department has......
