Bibliography about the Women of Ciudad Juárez, México

A work in progress, March 10, 2009

"Ciudad Juárez across the Río Grande river from El Paso, Texas is a large city (1,218,817) in the state of Chihuahua, home to approximately 300 maquiladora (foreign-owned manufacturing plants)  plants employing over 250,000 workers."  (Desarrollo Econόmico de Ciudad Juárez 2002, http://www.rff.org/Documents/RFF-DP-03-18.pdf). Like other industrial border towns, many maquiladoras have established a presence and act as a magnet for poor and unemployed individuals (mainly women.)  For the past ten years approximately 400 women (primarily young women) have been killed, sexually abused, and their bodies dumped in abandoned lots. Authorities have dismissed it and have been reluctant to make an effort to find the killer(s).

This bibliography, arranged by author, used InfoTrac, Lexis Nexis, and assorted other databases. It is not by any means a complete listing.

Thanks to the various individuals who have contributed to this bibliography over the years.
